SA cities not among the least liveable

14th September 2018 South Africans are a whinging lot – there is survey data from credible research entities to prove this – and one of biggest gripes is about living conditions in towns and cities, especially in the less-well-to-do areas, better known in our lingo as ‘locations’ or ‘townships’.
