It’s been a busy week for Mzansi’s promoters. Last week people flocked to Johannesburg for the launch of the first ever Starbucks SA. On Thursday, however, people were talking about an even bigger launch. The biggest in Africa, to be precise.
The Mall of Africa launched in Midrand, Johannesburg and people have made their way to it in their masses. All you can see on social media is crowds, herds and groups of anxious shoppers, ready to get their hands on some of the most exclusive deals in the country.
And if you thought that the lines of people were bad; take a look at the traffic!
It’s easy to understand why there’s so much excitement surrounding this launch. Mall of Africa is going to be the biggest mall on the continent, and will be home to over 300 stores! A few celebrities made their way to the launch and are doing their best to fight people off:
