1. Are you originally from Tshwane?
No, I am originally from a small village called Sephai near Brits in North West province, and arrived in Pretoria (Mamelodi) when I was 11.
2. What do you like most about the city
The calmness of the city compared with others that I have visited, the jacaranda trees, the humility of the people. The old buildings like the Union Buildings and the Pretoria Train Station. The easy-pace vibe the City has, and most importantly the lovely weather, including the afternoon summer showers.
