Kwanele Sosibo Reviews Eating from One Pot by Sarah Mosoetsa

Eating from One PotVerdict: carrot

Wits sociology lecturer Sarah Mosoetsa first began visiting KwaZulu-Natal’s shoe, clothing and textile factories in 1999. On subsequent visits she was shocked to discover that many of the women and men who worked in these factories were losing their jobs, so she shifted the focus of her research from the factory floor to the households they were trying to save from complete dysfunction.

In Eating from One Pot, two KwaZulu-Natal communities come into focus — eNhlalakahle, outside Greytown, and Mpumalanga, not far from Pietermaritzburg.
