CASE VIGNETTE FOR THIS ASSIGNMENT (THIS FROM CHAPTER THREE OF THE TEXT BOOK. (Gardiner, H.W. & Kosmitzki, C. (2018). Lives across cultures: Cross-cultural human development (6 th ed.). Pearson.). Case vignette Kamuzu Mathebula is fourteen years old and lives in Diepkloof, a section of Soweto, an all-black township outside Johannesburg, South Africa. He lives with his mother, grandmother, tow brothers and a sister in a shack made of discarded plastic sheeting and wood with a corrugated iron roof. There is no electricity or running water. Diarrhea and tuberculosis are common here. His mother, a widow, works as a maid for the Martins, an Afrikaner (white South African) family, five miles away. Kamuzu has attended poorly funded segregated schools most of his life. With the end of apartheid (the white government-enforced system of “separateness”) in 1990, his future has been looking better. Rather than working long hours for meager wages in one of the local textile factories, Kamuzu hopes to attend the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg to become a doctor and help his people. Hendrik and Patricia Martin, the Dutch-descended Afrikaner family that Kamuzu’s mother works for, have a son named Jeremy who is also fourteen years old. He and his younger sister, Yvonne, live in a wealthy neighborhood of large, well-kept homes. Jeremy’s father is the president of an import =-export company started by his grandfather, and his mother teaches science at the exclusive private school that he and his sister attend. His goal, similar to Kamuzu’s, is to attend the university in Johannesburg and study medicine.
