Joburg is a major South African metropolis.
As the City of Gold, Joburg attracts a wide range of visitors from all over the world.
It has been ravaged by rural-urban and foreign migration.
If you compare vintage photographs of Johannesburg with contemporary images, you'd assume they were taken in two different cities.
It used to be immaculately kept and spotless.
The buildings were only used for commercial purposes and not for residential purposes.
Even red London-style buses were utilized to transport passengers.
Take a look at the images in the gallery below.
When the ANC came to power when Apartheid ended in South Africa, foreigners began pouring into the country, and commercial buildings were converted to residences, leading to the destruction of the majority of them. It has been reported that some of the buildings have been taken over and utilized for narcotics and people trafficking purposes. As you'll see in the next paragraphs,
The white folks in charge of Joburg made the city a lot better.
They were able to keep it in good condition.
However, despite the fact that it was a dark period in our history, there were some advantages to Apartheid. In fact, they could run and maintain the city better than the ANC could.
It will take at least another two decades to rebuild such structures.
However, as long as the ANC is in power, foreigners will be allowed to continue destroying the buildings, making it nearly difficult to restore them to their original state.
When they are used by non-natives, they will only continue to deteriorate.
They were unable to govern one of the largest cities in Mzansi.
