In this video by ‘Loving Life’ we see that Johannesburg, South Africa, has apparently earned a new title – “The city of trash” And of course as we know, poor old Jan van Riebeeck gets blamed for everything! But to blame him for the state of the fire engines in Gauteng, which apparently he bought 50 years ago, is perhaps a tad silly or is it just ignorance? The video also looks at the poor state of Johannesburg city center and the disgusting filth that abounds with apparently no real plan or ability to clean it up, but they are working hard at it – Sort of like Eskom!

Less than flattering but par for the course under post-1994 South Africa. Basically it is a mismanaged chaos which is not unlike state owned entities, but the excuses of the lack of workers, with such high unemployment, is just as silly. Most of South Africa is an any event a trash heap.
