Sowetans’ happy with neighbourhoods, says survey!

This is according to a survey carried out by Gauteng City Region Observatory.

Happy. Sowetans are satisfied with neighbourhoods, according to survey.

The Sowetans are joined by Bryanston and Sunninghill residents who are satisfied with their neighbourhoods.

However, residents in townships and in areas like Boksburg and Bekkersdal however are not happy with their surroundings.

Residents of backyard shacks and informal settlements‚ even though they live in poor settlements‚ were pleased with their neighbourhoods that received substantial investments.

Residents of Mogale City on the West Rand noted substantial improvement in their areas‚ while in Mfuleni there were no visible changes to the environment.

Of participants surveyed across the province‚ over half said affirmative action and BEE should be sped up‚ but most white people were opposed to it.

Most respondents were also of the opinion that Indians should not benefit from affirmative action.

“A third of respondents agreed with the statement that South Africa belongs more to black Africans than coloureds‚ Indians or whites‚ whilst almost (49%) disagreed.”

A high number of people (43%) who were interviewed agreed that “there are too many people coming to Gauteng‚ we should bring back influx control“.

Of those who agreed to the influx control‚ 44% were black‚ 44% coloured‚ 39% Indians‚ and 40% white.

With Municipal Elections fast approaching such surveys will have impact on communities and their standard of living.
