Cape Town, its sunny beaches, its elegant mountains… and its glaring inequalities. The second most populated city in South Africa is the focus of the difficulties faced by Nelson Mandela’s country.

Thirty years after the end of apartheid, which had instituted segregation between the black and white populations, statistics point to inequalities that are still almost unique in the world.

One striking element allows us to visualize them: the place of residence. While the majority of whites live near the center of the city, or in well-to-do residential suburbs, close to economic activity, blacks and “coloureds” live on the fringe. This is the crux of the inequalities that have persisted in the country for nearly 30 years.
