Randburg is an area located in the north west of Johannesburg. Founded in 1959 as the almagation of 32 suburbs, the name Randburg was chosen in a competition, and is derived from the South African Rand currency, which was introduced at around the same time that the new municipality was established in 1959.The residential demographic of Randburg ends to be more affluent than most of Johannesburg. The area was declared as a white area during the Apartheid era, but post-apartheid has attracted a varied population. It is still predominated by white English and Afrikaans suburban citizens.
