Kenyan in and around Cape Town

Unclean! Unclean!


The story goes that before a cure for leprosy was found, lepers would wear a bell and shout “UNCLEAN! UCLEAN!” as they walked the streets. In Cape Town, Lepers were banished to Robben Island, together with political prisoners, and when they died they were buried here 😦
