There is a Chinese shop in Imizamo Yethu, a township in Hout Bay, South Africa. The owners have migrated from China three years ago. The shop is simply called The Chinese Shop by everyone, it is the best in the township and sells almost everything, from clothing to knives to DVD players. The goods are imported from China.
Post-apartheid immigrants from China to South Africa by far outnumber native-born Chinese South Africans whose ancestors came to South Africa throughout the early 20th century. Only the latter qualify as previously disadvantaged individuals as Coloureds to benefit under under affirmative action programmes.
