Molweni from Cape Town: DBi South Africa 2018

Throughout our time in South Africa, students on DBi Cape Town were often greeted with a friendly Molweni—or ‘welcome’—in Xhosa, one Cape Town’s many languages. This greeting was commonly heard in Cape Town’s townships—segregated urban areas on the periphery of the city where many were displaced during apartheid. During our two weeks of learning with the University of Cape Town, Stern students spent considerable time in the townships and learning about life and business in the diverse areas of Cape Town.

The commonly considered landscape of Cape Town includes the waterfront, the easily identifiable 2010 World Cup stadium, and the beautiful nature of Table Mountain and its surrounding national park.…
