My Jozi


Explore Jozi with me.

I’m a Jozi girl to the tee! I was born in 1969 at the Coronationville Hospital, Johannesburg, now known as the Rahima Moosa Mother & Child Hospital.  I grew up in Westbury, a township south of Johannesburg CBD, and notorious for gang violence.  

My family was not well off, but we never lacked for anything.  Our lives were simple.  My parents didn’t own a car, we travelled everywhere either by bus or train, or we walked.  I have many precious childhood memories of my dad and I taking a train to town (Jhb CBD), and then walking all over town, visiting parks and exploring Jozi.  This is how my deep love for this beautiful city began.
