Randfontein is a diverse place, it consists of different kinds of people, in terms of race and languages. The most frequently spoken languages are Afrikaans, English, SeSotho, Setswana, IsiXhosa and IsiZulu. The people of Randfontein are very friendly and accommodating. Aside from the variety of languages we speak, our variety of food on offer is exceptional.

Randfontein is a vibrant city. It is a great place for sourcing second hand vehicles and a great place for anyone seeking a fresh start. It is a great place for young couples to start a life/family. It is well known for its mining activity and this makes it a level playing field for new job seekers and graduates.

Although I have just recently moved to this city, it is a busy place that offers many opportunities. It is quite expense to live in, but I would also say that if you are someone who is hardworking, persistent and with a direction in life, you will come across so many opportunities. It’s also such a stunning place, well for a country like mine. Unfortunately, it is not the safest place, so your coming needs to be pretty planned out and you actually need to be careful while roaming around.

It is within the mines and factory sector where most things are manufactured. example blankets and food. It is near the big cities like Johannesburg and Pretoria where the South African Reserve Bank is based. Most people enjoy buying land and use it for business or accommodation. The yards are also big if you purchase a house.

Randfontein is a small town in the heart of South Africa. It’s important to note that my town is usually referred to as a “sleeping town” due to that most people only reside here and work elsewhere. Although quiet, a new shopping centre was recently opened. My town is also said to have the most churches, and the most liquor stores, per square metre compared to any other town in South Africa.
