Gauteng

Gauteng is one of the nine provinces that make up the Republic of South Africa. Its capital is Johannesburg. It is located in the northeast of the country, bounded on the north by Limpopo, on the east by Mpumalanga, on the south by Free State and on the west by Northwest. Formerly part of the province of Transvaal, until the multiracial elections of April 27,1994. At first it was called Pretoria-Witwatersrand-Vereeniging but in December of that year it received the current name. Located in the heart of the Highveld, Gauteng is the smallest province of the country with only 1.4% of its surface, but it is highly urbanized and has a population of 12,272,263 inhabitants according to the 2011 census.

The name Gauteng comes from the sesotho language that means Land of gold, referring to the mining of that precious metal that was installed in the area after the discovery of 1886 in Johannesburg. The phrase in sesotho derives from the Afrikaans word "goud" plus the place suffix "ng." When pronounced correctly, the first letter of the name Gauteng is a J, like the combination "ch" in the German word "achtung" or in the Dutch Van Gogh. This guttural pronunciation is natural in the Sesotho and Afrikaans languages.
