A promised land that you are led to believe in, often by corrupt rulers, but one that never materialises: The South African Sotho-word ‘Kanana’ refers to this. The word is astonishingly similar to Canaan, the biblical land of milk and honey that was promised to Moses. In Via Kanana Gregory Maqoma and Via Katlehong explore routes to that promised land, which may never be reached but should not lead to despair. In Heerlen, Breda, Groningen en Den Haag
