Bleach the Dam

It has been over three decades since people of Esikebheni, an area outside Inanda, north of Durban, have been displaced by Inanda dam. Forced to start over due to a water reserve that does not even supply the community with drinking water. Photographer Thobani K who was born in this area teamed up with Pattern Nation and myself to produce images that tell a piece of the story about the struggle for water. Esikebheni is currently experiencing water cut-offs and strongly depends on water trucks delivering water twice a week. This has been a reality since 2013.
