Word on the street

By Sarah Rose de Villiers

Word on the street is someone is in love, somebody didn’t do it and something is fake.

Graffiti decorates sidewalls, alleys and postboxes in Grahamstown. The walls are dressed in words, concrete is splashed with sentiments and the streets are talking – to us? To each other? To no one in particular?

Is this a conversation, a statement, a question, or are we eavesdropping?

Sometimes the street are a little louder, more political and fuelled by power.
