Covers Nigel/Springs/Benoni/Brakpan/Kempton Park/Alberton/Heidelberg/Germiston/Bedfordview (Bedfordview is actually a suburb of Germiston, but the snotty folks there don't like being told that) . Some parts of Midrand/Olifantsfontein as well I think. It's the largest Metro area in Gauteng.
Well I'll be damned, it is. But it segues so smoothly into Joburg too. :eek:

Bedford just took a knock on the Knyro snob-o-meter.

This move may just backfire - state capture and VBS are still fresh in the minds and even the sheeple are getting tired of these self enrichment schemes that does not add any value to their lives or improve their living conditions one bit.

I have an idea.
We change all roads in South Africa to the following:
Nelson Mandela Road [number] for roads that go in a North South direction
Nelson Mandela Street [number] for roads that go in an East/West direction.

All suburbs are named Nelson Mandela suburb [1]

All airports are named Nelson Mandela airport in [City name]

All cities are named Nelson Mandela City [number]

All provinces are named Nelson Mandela Province [number]

Where do you live?
I live in Number 9 Nelson Mandela Road, Nelson Mandela Suburb 35, Nelson Mandela City 2, Nelson Mandela Province 4
