History of Khayelitsha

Khayelitsha, which means New Home, was built in the early 1980’s as part of the Apartheid Government’s attempt at controlling the growth of the black population in Cape Town. Forming part of the Group Areas Act, black people were forcibly relocated to Khayelitsha township. Today the area houses more than 500 000 people and though one of the poorest communities in Cape Town, it is known for its entrepreneurial spirit and vibrant culture.

SHEIKH YUSUF KRAMAT

Sheikh Yusuf of Macassar is considered the father of Islam at the Cape. A man of noble birth, he was exiled to the Cape and his political and spiritual influence
