Langa is the oldest township in the Cape Flats. It goes back to 1927 (before the apartheid era) and was a place of much resistance against the government. Most inhabitants speak Xhosa as their first language. Many, but by far not all of the intitially dominant shacks have been replaced by solid houses.
