Pink Tax written by Noxolo Bhengu delves into the harrowing reality of human trafficking by pulling back the curtain to the dark underbelly of this modern-day slavery. In a city called Ntozonke [everything], it’s safe and peaceful. Neighbours coexist in harmony and nothing out of the ordinary happens. However, the residents are unaware that it’s the breeding ground for syndicates who lurk in street corners and buildings, watching and plotting, waiting to make their move. They prey on the impoverished by promising them false employment, they lure naive individuals into traps disguised as free access to living lavish lifestyles. They manipulate people who’ve surrendered their trust as lovers and family members.
