We as ‘Joburgers’ are a tough bunch.
We live with crime , corruption and rampant thievery – and that’s just the E Tolls!
We work hard , party harder and don’t take shit from anyone.
If you give us kak, prepare for a klap!
On the other hand , we are kind, compassionate , generous and giving. We support our causes , animals , kids and rhino’s…
We love our Sport cricket, rugby , soccer , cycling and braai’s ( I think it’s a sport).
We are hospitable and friendly . We love company , great food and wine shared with friends and family.
We are the people of Joburg.
Living in the City of Gold
There is no place like it…
Our Skyline , as unique as we are.
The Hillbrow Tower , Sentech Tower , Ellis Park and FNB Stadium – who needs a mountain?
Our weather , hot summers with those chararcteristic thunderstorms that frighten so many under beds when they first get here. Our mild winters with the occasional Snowstorm…
Our social scene, theatre, restaurants , night clubs , bars , outdoor events and major concerts.
From The South to the North , East to West, this sprawling city holds us all in her heart,as do we.
While we don’t all see eye to eye on things , we do agree on a few simple fundamentals.
That the Lions are the best rugby team – even if we have to wait a decade to prove it!
That Ellis Park is the best venue in the world to watch International Rubgy and that our biltong is the best in the Land.
The other side of Joburg.
As with all things in Life , there is a dark side to this city. Crime , violence , drugs , corruption and traffic are all part of our daily existence.
We read about child rapes and murders , abuse , hijackings , home robberies and traffic accidents every day…we fight the system as best we can by taking up causes in our thousands and making our voices heard – even though the people that we are shouting at don’t listen.
While this is the City Of Gold, it is not all about money.
For when it comes to the humanity of our citizens – our hearts are true.
The Joburg Truth.
This is all about us…telling it like it is.
I warn you though , that the language is colourful ( to say the least) and some of this content is not suitable for younger people…
But hey…you have to be a member to see it…so register below.
I am going to talk about traffic , cops, e tolls and other things that really piss me off and what we can do about it in our own inimitable Joburg style.
For once, this is no holds barred. There is no censorship here…This is our site – for us – and well will tell it.
You can choose to engage , or not..you can comment (or not) …the choice is yours.
And that’s the Joburg Truth.
