Quick Cape Town Fact: Why are the houses in Bo-Kaap district painted in bright colours? The original residents of this area in Cape Town were descendants of slaves brought in from Africa and Asia and were Muslims. As part of their religion they celebrate Ramadan – the Islamic month of fasting. At the end of the holy month it is tradition to dress up in brightly coloured clothes and at the same time many of the residents then paint their houses. The reason for getting so many different colours is that the residents and neighbours discuss together what colours they are painting their houses to avoid colour clashes or two houses painted the same colour next to each other.
