Sifiso and Ashley live in Brixton and run the Roving Bantu Kitchen. Both share a love for people, culture and food. Together they are trying to make a difference on a small grubby corner in Brixton……the struggle is not over
Sifiso grew up in Sabie, Soweto, Alex and Swaziland. He found himself a political exile in the early 80s when he was forced to leave the country and make his way back to Swaziland where he went to school, on to Tanzania and eventually New York and finally Toronto
He returned to South Africa in 1996 where he has been ever since and has remained strongly motivated to make a difference: politically, socially and culturally.
A social entrepeneur, a maverick thinker, a risk taker and a cultural activist he has always taken it upon himself to make a difference and this can never be undisputed. He has been relentless in his creative endeavours from the days of Dark City Jive, to the house of Tandoor in Rockey Street, to the Politburo Sessions, the house of NsAkO in Brixton, the SoJazzMeander and now the Roving Bantu Kitchen
Ashley grew up in Johannesburg and is an unrequited artist who found her way into the building industry and discovered a love for bricks and mortar. Having designed and facilitated the african themed moyo outlets nationwide for a span of 14 years she has also done home renovations and project management.
