Biography: Seventeen years old at the time of the interview, Tsebo Knowledge Ngema has lived his entire life in Sebokeng. He has been raised by a single parent (his mother is currently unemployed) and although he knows his absentee father, he has no relationship with him. He has a two-year old (step) brother. He has done well in school and with his good matric results has applied to further education. He desires to get out of the ‘township’ as soon as possible due to lack of opportunity and hopes to become a lawyer so he can support his mother and brother. He is a church goer, loves music and cares about what is going on in Africa. Since our interview, Tsebo has been able to pursue his studies further at a local university.
Description: This interview with Tsebo Knowledge Ngema, a recently finished matric student, was conducted by Dale McKinley and Ahmed Veriava in Sebokeng in 2007 as part of the South African History Archive's Alternative History Project, titled 'Forgotten Voices in the Present'.
