Description [ correction ]

Potchefstroom (or 'Potch') is an academic city situated on the banks of the Mooirivier, well known for the North West University campus there. The name is most likely from the word 'Potscherf', meaning a shard of a broken pot. The city was a pivotal point during the Anglo-Boer wars, but has evolved into an education centre.
