Alexandra

Interesting
Created in 1912, Alexandra, likeKlispruit andSoweto , was built to house blacks working in the mines and other industries. They were put up in identical little "match box" houses all in a row, far from Johannesburg where white people lived. Nowadays the inhabitants of this township, one of the poorest in the urban area, live in dire poverty. A guide is imperative if you feel you must visit the township.
