History: The Urban Areas Act was passed in 1923 as a way of forcing black and coloured Africans to take up residence in allocated areas. Langa and Gugulethu are two such areas. Langa was opened in 1927 as a residence for those who were removed from Ndabeni near Maitland. Close to Langa, Gugulethu was established in 1958 to accommodate the overflow from Langa township, as well as migrant workers from the Eastern Cape. The township’s population quickly grew to over 27,000 by 1963. Today, both Langa and Gugulethu continue to be vibrant communities in the development of the city of Cape Town.
