Since the apartheid until today, the South African ghettos have taken on distinct and ar-ticulated configurations, which require conscious monitoring of their evolution, careful to understand their transformations, and free from sensationalist rhetoric of necessary forced removal. The paper reconstructs the effects of the division inherited from post-apartheid Jo-hannesburg in the daily life of an immigrant teenager living in a township and struggling with new confinement from Covid-19. A double-wait for a profile representative of an entire generation "in the waithood", whose urgency for the future invokes the rethinking of urban development finally based on relationality rather than divisions to mend the fragmented socio-economic fabric of the most unequal city in the world.
Keywords: Johannesburg, township, youth, waithood, Covid-19, global apartheid
