The public have been notified of the deadly flood situation in Gauteng.
Today as we bid farewell to 2018, I ask our residents in the @CityofJoburgZA to please be careful on the roads.
It is a wet and slippery #NewYearsEve today.
Have fun. Have a great time with friends and family, and we will meet again in the #NewYear2019 🎉🎆🎊🍾🥂🍻@JoburgMPD pic.twitter.com/qZQvEzKZO1
