WWe hope you enjoyed meeting our Marine Expert, Alison Towner, last week and learning about South Africa’s Marine Big Five! In the penultimate episode tonight, Gregg makes his way to South Africa’s most populous city – Johannesburg (or Jozi to locals).
Soweto is one of South Africa’s largest and most bustling townships and Gregg heads up the Soweto Cooling Towers and gets to experience the vastness of this iconic city.
He then meets Jozi local, Charles Ncube, and heads into the heart of the township. Soweto’s vibrant Vilakazi Street is the only street in the world which was home to two Nobel Peace Prize-winners – Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. It isn’t long before Gregg meets a couple of Soweto locals to sample the unique township flavours of vetkoek (deep-fried dough) and mango atchar (a sweet and spicy mango condiment).
GGregg visits a creche before meeting Thulani, who runs the Kliptown Youth Program in Soweto. The organisation provides after-school homework assistance and meals to over 500 local children. He then participates in one of the township’s most exciting pastimes – gumboot dancing!
