If someone was to move to my city, knowledge regarding the use of public transport is important. Moreover, that my City is very under developed in a developing country. In addition, the healthcare system is horrible compared to other cities. Altogether, Mafikeng is a City in a very poor state.

My city is not full of opportunities like other big cities but it is not a disadvantaged city. We have the best educational fields, facilities and many other important things needed. It is only the employment rate that is very low but some are getting there.

Mafikeng is a small city, making it easier for people to know one another. However if one enjoys the corporate world, Mafikeng is suitable as it is known as an administrative city. There is not much to do for fun besides game rides in the nature reserve, clubbing, dining and shopping.

It is a small city with very friendly people. The population is mostly people between the ages of 33 – 65. The weather is fairly balanced with cool summers and warm winters, could be the reason why the spirit of Ubuntu is still alive and well. There is not that much to do as opposed to bigger cities, but there is strong heritage and culture that one can benefit from.

My city is surrounded by villages. The life is slow but relaxing and rewarding. It is a cultural town with traditional history. The food cuisine is interesting and fun if you don’t mind learning and trying new things. We have game reserves surrounding us. The people are great and love everyone.

Mafikeng is a place of peace, communities live like relatives. It is easy to make friends as almost every child in a community attends the same school. There is a few malls and shopping centres that you can do your shopping at. Most of the learners from our communities got awards for best students in the national awards.
