What can you Tell me About King Williams Town?
The town has just over a hundred thousand inhabitants and is part of the much bigger metropolis of Buffalo City. Recently, attempts are being made to rename it with an African name to dispense with its current colonial name. It’s a mainly residential and commercial town leaning heavily towards farming although its proximity to the beaches and sights of East London means that it is starting to gain in importance as a tourist base.
