My city is an amazing place to live in, it is a quiet town. We have shops in the city and very friendly neighbours. It has been safe for years though but now you can’t just walk on the streets alone without worrying as there have been complaints about people’s phones been taken. Overall it is not that bad but one has to be careful at all times on the streets.

It is so small compared to other places. It has mines, for example Harmony, number 10. There’s only 1 KFC unlike other places. There is no mall around. There is a stadium nearby where sports events are held. Many people speak Sesotho, some Xhosa and some Afrikaans, it is an old town but it is really nice staying around here as it is peaceful too.
