As part of a research project exploring the interrelationship between home-based income generation and housing conditions, detailed interviews were carried out with low income dwellers in Pretoria, South Africa. Drawing on extensive extracts from the transcript of one of these interviews, this paper analyses the destructive impact of apartheid on everyday activities and offers insights into how black people are attempting to overcome this legacy and take greater control of their lives.
