Gauteng once k.a PWV -

the economic and industrial heart of South Africa.

The centre of all is the Witwatersrand, the ridge from which gold was discovered originally in Langalaagte, west of Johannesburg CBD.
towns that developed eat and west of JHB were mainly related to the Gold Industry, which later from Klerksdorp swung south West into the Free Sate mines.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:60% of country's population and economy probably found here
  • Cons:where there's money, there's congestion and some BAD elelments, but can be avoided
  • In a nutshell:The economic heart of South Africa
