Umdzabu Cultural Group host weekend workshop at local abandoned jail

The old Leandra Jail was buzzing with activity the past weekend as 14 cultural groups converged on the jail for a weekend of learning and dancing.

The Umdzabu Cultural Group hosted a weekend workshop in the old Leandra Jail. The jail posed some challenges to the young ones as the toilet facilities are extremely limited as well as the sleeping quarters.

“We need toilets and mattresses,” said Mr Dumisani Nkambula, “we also need paint to make the place look more friendly.”

The Bulletin looked at the quarters and saw that they need a lot of attention.

Umdzabu Cultural Group

The Umdzabu Cultural Group started in 2014 and was an immediate sensation. The group continued to impress and won a lot of prizes. They were even invited to a festival overseas but could not attend due to the lack of funding.

The feeding area for members of the Umdzabu Cultural Group is mainly the Lebohang Township. The area is not a rich area and the group has to struggle to make ends meet.

A few benefactors have contributed already and hopefully we will be able to bring news as the support grows.

The old Jail is a good place to host the group but needs to be renovated.

“The youngsters like to dance, and it helps to keep them from roaming the streets and getting into trouble,” said Dumisani, “There are a lot of drugs going around and here we don’t allow that.”

Please help us, The Bulletin, to support the Umdzabu Cultural Group. You can contact us directly on this page or send us an email on encee@thebulletin.co.za
