After the War

In his home coun­try, the Demo­crat­ic Re­pub­lic of the Con­go, 22 year old Ca­r­ole Machu­mu is a fa­mous pro­fes­sion­al foot­ball goal­keep­er. When the on­go­ing civ­il war claimed his fa­ther's life and tore apart the rest of his fam­i­ly, he was forced to flee to South Africa.
Here, how­ev­er, with his refugee sta­tus, he is not al­lowed to pro­ceed with his pro­fes­sion­al ca­reer and has to work as a car guard in or­der to sur­vive. Un­til his dream of be­com­ing a world-class goal­keep­er for Eu­rope, Amer­i­ca or Asia comes true, he plays for the am­a­teur club Camps Bay FC to stay in shape.
‘Af­ter the War’ won the 2010 Deutsch­er Re­porter­preis in the Best Web Re­portage cat­e­go­ry.
