Images of Jika Joe, an informal settlement in the heart of the city of Pietermaritzburg. The people in this community built their homes here to be close to jobs in the city.
The area has been plagued with fires that jump from house to house. These fires have forced some people to live in tents on a local sports field.
The ANC led City of Pietermaritzburg has provided prefab temporary housing units alongside the homes that the community built, the city’s plan is to remove the community from the area and move them to formal housing that will be far from these peoples jobs.
