Ride With the Cockroach Kingpin, Cape Flats, South Africa for Discovery TRVLR ...
“In this area there are no formal businesses, it’s basically just informal
businesses. If you got a small business you and you are able to hire one or two people you just open it and those people are able to feed their families. My friend approached me to join the informal taxi’s. It is dangerous although we try our best. My wife Desiree runs a business called Ruby’s Hot Plates, it’s a informal business. Our customers are basically a mix either of the taxi owners or drivers and the community as well. Khayeltsha is the biggest township. It’s easier to make a business in an
over crowded area because there are more people ya know. And it’s easy to get that cash.”
