It’s always sad when an iconic Cape Town institution hits the rocks. This latest saga spells big trouble for the future of the Cape Minstrels, and something smells very suspicious about it all.
About 10 million Hindus followed holy men into the cold waters of the Ganges yesterday as part of the world’s biggest religious event. About 50 000 policemen have also been deployed to keep order.
The Cape Minstrel Carnival is Cape Town’s longest-running street party/parade, and is led by the Kaapse Klopse (Cape minstrels) every year on the second of January.
