Masiphumelele History: 
Masiphumelele was initially established in the early 1980’s by migrant workers from the Eastern Cape, most of whom had found work in the Fish Hoek Valley. Masiphumelele (formerly called Site 5) boomed with development in the early 1990’s and is now home to nearly 30 000 residents.

Masiphumelele success:
Masiphumelele means “we will succeed” in Xhosa and visitors can experience many of the success stories and development programmes that have been established in the informal settlement. Masi (as it is commonly known) is an excellent example of determination, self-help and the settlement has a strong sense of community.

Masiphumelele People & Lifestyle: 
You’ll see cheerful women roasting their mealie cobs and sidewalk stores in addition to the spaza shops.
Kwaito music will blare from battered cars, colourful barber shops will have stylists hard at work. 
The schools have fresh faced enthusiastic leaners, who are quick to take to the streets in a game of street cricket or football.
