Govan Mbeki

We were recently asked to show the upgraded Govan Mbeki Street. This is a composite shot, showing the view back towards the city hall, and showing one of the new street vendor's shelters.


  1. Thanks so much for the photo, I would like to see how it look with the traffic and hawkers during a busy day. Can you please get opposite view?

    If you can please also show us parliament street.

    Keep up the good work.

  2. The upgrade truely was an improvement for the area. Now if they can only sort out the illegal parking in that lane, everything will be hunky dory.

  3. I used to get off the bus on the left of this street from sydenham and then run across to the other side to catch another bus to Kabega on my way home from school.It was a long time ago and I cant remember the bus' numbers now.My Mum used to work in the OK Bazaars and for a short while I used to go to Benny Oshers Gym down a side street there.I often think about that gym and... "who was Benny Osher?"

  4. Oh my goodness, my grandfather used to have a section of Benny Oshers gym, where he did rehabilitation and massage, I've been chatting to my dad and trying to get to know more about my grandad as he died when I was very very young and I unfortunately didn't get to know him, I believe my grandmother used to help him mange his gym, she I did fortunately get to know as she was such an amazing woman and I miss her dearly. If anyone has information or photos of Benny oshers gym I would be eternaly greatful
