Thousands of South Africanâ€™s participated in the eighth annual Gauteng Carnival earlier this week. People dressed in colourful clothing, danced and sang as they paraded through the streets of Johannesburg. Â The carnival, which is traditionally held at the beginning of spring and is part of Heritage Month celebrations, included a parade of colourful floats and troupes of revelers attired in strange and wonderful costumes singing and dancing to lively music. IHSAAN HAFFAJEE was there.
