This article focuses on technologies of mobility for people with physical disabilities living in a South African poor urban setting. It moves away from a perspective that exposes limitations to underline specific opportunities for people with disabilities to design the city. In the township of Mitchell’s Plain (Cape Town), known for its violence, defining when and where to use the chair involves a negotiation of moral and medical norms with a pursuit of security. In this process, the wheelchair constitutes one element of a larger continuum of wheeled mobility. The availability of public and private alternative transport enhances already present inequalities among people with disabilities. Two systems of public transport are further discussed, namely Dial-a-Ride (a specialized transport) and MyCiTi bus (a mainstream service). Initiatives of the City of Cape Town, these transports are widely discussed and criticized by people with disabilities. Through discussion with or opposition to the local government, associations participate actively in their inclusion in the post-apartheid city. My conclusions, drawn upon nineteen months of ethnographic fieldwork, call upon the theoretical framework of the anthropology of material things and the sociology of space. [less ▲]

This thesis explores subjectivities shaped by locomotive disability in the post-apartheid city through an ethnography of ordinary life. Locomotive disability encompasses every limitation of mobility due to an infirmity of the lower limbs. In my discussion, it is conceived as a ‘test’ (épreuve), namely an event that interrupts everyday routines and creates tensions between the responsibilities of different actors’ – people with disabilities, families, the state, etc. These tensions are articulated on various levels. In my discussion, I focus on three of them: the political field that determines a certain type of citizenship, the social networks that constitute the person, and finally the understanding people with disabilities have of their personal history. These levels combine to shape people’s subjectivity, and are analysed in a Foucauldian perspective not just as individuals’ relations with themselves, but also with others and the wider world.

En mobilisant le cadre théorique interactionniste pensé par Strauss (1992), cet article décrit les différentes tâches effectuées par l’entourage du malade dans un hôpital béninois afin de montrer comment ce travail réalisé gratuitement par des travailleurs profanes favorise le fonctionnement au jour le jour de la structure. Les concepts d’« intermédiation » et de « dépendance » permettent de saisir les contraintes familiales exercées sur le patient en plus du contrôle médical. En conclusion, cet article prône le développement d’études sur les garde-malades pour renouveler les recherches sur la relation thérapeutique et sur l’organisation hospitalière en Afrique de l’Ouest.
