Joburg! The Passion Behind a City has generated huge interest and support from people who want Joburg to succeed and become a better place to live and prosper – a place to be proud of.
In an extract from the foreword, Wendy Luhabe, Entrepreneur and First Lady of Gauteng explains: “As the city evolved into a metropolis, many people found their way here in search of fame. My early memories are primarily of Joburg as a cultural hub of jazz clubs, restaurants, night clubs, concerts at the old Colosseum and of course the exquisite architecture of the inner city. Today there are encouraging signals which assure us that the vibrancy is returning to the whole metropolitan area from Midrand to Soweto. As a mirror of South African society, Joburg is proof that this country of ours is Alive with Possibility”.
Publisher Ken Preston says, “The support we’ve been receiving is gratifying and confirms what we discovered during the 2 years of compiling the book – that many people are passionate about this city and are determined to make it work, hence the title.”
