Peas in a pod-Mogadishu in Jozi
23 Oct 2018 Peas In A Pod
Episode 14 –Mogadishu in Jozi
Mayfair is home to a sizable Somali community whose entrepreneurial spirit becomes evident in the ownership of spaza shops across most townships. Next to this thriving culture of business smarts is the weariness of sporadic xenophobic attacks towards the community. As a way of bridging the sometimes negative attitudes shown towards the Somali community, Peas In a A Pod embeds itself at Kismayo Steak House owned by Guhad Kedi, as well as shares a spirited and brotherly conversation about Mogadishu, Sufi poetry and Somali family values with Amir Sheikh who is Chairman of the Somali Community Board Of South Africa.
