CNN's Errol Barnett Explores The Streets Of Jozi


One of my favorite journos/presenter Errol Barnett takes a closer look at the real Johannesburg in this week’s episode of Inside Africa on CNN International. From downtown Jozi to the new hip spot Maboneng and the old gem of the city Yeoville.  

As Barnett hits the streets of downtown Jo’burg for a more vibrant, informal perspective of the city, he discovers the cultural exchange, the artistic expression and the various ways people make a living in Johannesburg.

He speaks to street vendors in the CBD, who sell wares ranging from books to fruit to fish, about the cultural melting pot that downtown Johannesburg has become.

Musician Kelly Grevler also features as she discusses passing on her skills and passion to a new generation by giving free guitar lessons to girls in the Maboneng Precinct.


In Yeoville, Barnett speaks to Sanza Fakudze, a journalist, restaurateur and Yeovillite. Fakudze’s restaurant, Eat Arabi, features dishes with Congolese, Nigerian, Zimbabwean, Ethiopian, South African, Indian and Thai flavours.


Inside Africa highlights the true diversity of the continent as seen through the experiences of different cultures and religions and the mediums of art, music, travel and literature.

Catch the episode on Dstv Channel 401 on Wednesday 29 May at 09h30.
