“I like living in White River because of the landscape and green surroundings along the farms and town. It is much quieter and peaceful environment in which to do business. There is also a strong sense of social cohesion compared to other surrounding towns. For these reasons White River relates to my personality. I recommend both pharmacies in town – Lowveld and Mopani. Their services are exceptionally good. You get the best treatment at the White River pharmacies.”
– Prince Manqoba Dhlamini
