General Information

Boksburg, situated in the East Rand, is the second oldest town on the Witwatersrand and is an industrial and mining centre, with gold first being discovered in 1887.

In 1887, a small town was set out to sevre some of the Rand's gold mines. Eduard Bok, State Secretary of the South African Republic, provided its name and Mining Commissioner Montague White built a large dam which, empty for years, was dubbed White's Folly until a flashflood in 1889 silenced detractors. The 15ha dam is now the attractive Boksburg lake.

Boxburg is the site of the assassination of South African Communist Party leader Chris Hani in 1993. The assassination lead to tension in the country and a number of riots broke out. Democratic elections were held just over a year after Chris Hani’s death.

The town is also the birthplace of Gerrie "the Boksburg Bomber" Coetzee, former WBA heavyweight boxing champion of the world and James Phillips wrote a song called "Boksburg Bomber".
