In the past couple of weeks there has been a flurry of service delivery activity in Joburg. Vanessa Banton asks if it is because local government elections are on the horizon?
Perhaps it wasn't so noticeable during hard lockdown, but when we're able to drive around at night when curfew was extended, it became apparent that large parts of Johannesburg didn't have working street lights.
