Siyabulela “Sabu” Siyaka was born, bred, and buttered in the township of Langa within Cape Town South Africa. He was raised around the rich culture and unity within his community, despite the harsh reality of the past.
Through his resiliency, he founded Ubizo, which directly translates to “the calling’”. Ubizo is to share the abundance of the townships’ culture and rooted history with the world.
As the Vice-Chair of his community’s local government and an executive member of Langa Ward 53, Sabu has always and continues to steer his community towards a prosperous and hopeful future by pushing for more housing projects and development within Langa. This has further enriched his knowledge of the inner dynamics of his community.
