Episode 13 –A history of numbers inside the Red Chamber: A South Africa – China story

In the wake of China making major infrastructural investments within South Africa, the history behind the two nations has always been prefaced by numbers. Most notably, numbers are core to Fahfee/MoChina game, where, as a form of lottery, there is an interchangeable relationship of winning and losing between the Chinese dealers and township gamblers. This serves as a larger metaphor of current relations between SA and China. Author of “Paper Sons and Daughters” Ufrieda Ho guides us through the politics and mystique of Fahfee. We also step into The Red Chamber, a restaurant owned by Emma Chen as she tells of the ‘old country’ and its mores. Data Analyst and storyteller, Fumbatha May joins in to tell of his recent trip to China.
