by Kevin KL Silver Note Writer [C:  W: 0 N: 88] (361)

Situated between Port Elizabeth Airport and the suburb of Walmer. Walmer Township is home to about 70,000 people, mainly indigenous Xhosa.

For the most part it looks like classic Township, but in recent years goverment projects have introduced a higher level of services and regenerated some areas of housing. Many social problems remain and HIV infection rates run at 30%, Unemployemt is over 80%.
