Ukubutha  
Video, 3:00 minutes 

Ukubutha is a proposal for a self-sufficient infrastructure intended for South African townships, remnants of the racial segregation enforced by the former Apartheid government. It was developed for Mamelodi, a township in Pretoria where one million people are living in slums while the government is unable to provide adequate access to water, sanitation and secure housing. Ukubutha – which means “to gather” in Zulu – investigates the needs of communities and enables them to take infrastructural management into their own hands by creating their own clean water, energy and waste systems. This is an empowering solution to the slow or non-existent progress of government service delivery.
