Let’s be honest: a lot of the time, living in South Africa is no joke. From crime and corruption to cash-in-transit heists and car accidents, us South Africans experience our fair share of adversity. Nelson Mandela Bay, Durban and Cape Town all rank in the top 50 most dangerous cities in the world to live in. On the global stage, the picture painted of SA is seldom pretty, defined by scandalous politicians and satire rather than selfless leaders and social interest.
From snoozing MPs in parliament and Doom Pastors to bamboozled SARS IT Chiefs, one thing is for sure: living in SA is never a dull moment. We’re all in this together, and the best way to survive it is with a good sense of humour and the right shoes to #WalkItOff in.
