FOREWORD

MESSAGE FROM THE PUBLISHER W

e are proud to publish the eleventh annual edition of The Local Government Handbook: South Africa.

To our knowledge, it remains the only comprehensive annual guide to municipalities in South Africa. Together with our other government handbooks, The National Government Handbook: South Africa and The Provincial Government Handbook: South Africa, the Handbooks consolidate, summarise and profile more than 850 government departments, public entities and municipalities in all spheres of government. Nataly Reinch / Shutterstock.com

This edition reflects the status of municipalities as at 1 January 2021. In compiling the Handbook we rely on an annual survey that we conduct with all municipalities, as well as the work of many government institutions. A detailed description of our methodology and sources can be found on page 7. Of course, the data is not always perfect but, as we have done since 2009, we strive to present the information in a dispassionate, coherent, consolidated and comparative manner, in an effort to create a fair and accurate view of each municipality. The Handbook is designed to be used in conjunction with our website – municipalities.co.za – where even more extensive information is available. The website is searchable, links directly to relevant source reports and is regularly updated. The website also retains historical information about municipalities that were disestablished in August 2016. We trust that the publication and website add valuable sources of easy-to-access municipal information to the South African landscape.

FIND US ONLINE AT MUNICIPALITIES.CO.ZA ALL THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS PUBLICATION IS ALSO AVAILABLE ON OUR USER-FRIENDLY WEBSITE, UPDATED THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

e have taken care to collect, capture and cross-reference the information in the Handbook as accurately as possible. It should, however, be recognised that some types of information listed change frequently. It is inevitable that some of the information will be incorrect at source or become outdated during and after publication. We, therefore, take no responsibility for the accuracy of the information in the Handbook. This Handbook is the sister-publication of our website – municipalities.co.za. The website displays more extensive information than the Handbook, and is updated throughout the year. Where practical, the website references and links to the original source reports. If you notice any errors or omissions, contact us at info@municipalities.co.za so that we may correct the website and future editions of the Handbook.

Municipal Survey Process Contact details, municipal descriptions, and particulars of political and administrative personnel are updated primarily via an annual survey that we conduct with all municipalities. The latest survey took place from September 2020 to December 2020 and the information should be considered up to date during this period. While we go to great effort to gather complete and accurate information, some municipalities are more responsive than others. Where possible, we cross-reference against their website, records provided by SALGA, and other credible sources.

Municipal Area and Maps Municipal area information is supplied by the Municipal Demarcation Board (MDB) and underlying source material for the maps by the GIS/IT department of the Board. Refer to demarcation.org.za for information on the MDB.

Demographic Information Demographic information is provided by Statistics South Africa (Stats SA). The figures in the Handbook are Community Survey 2016 data (as fully restated by Stats SA to reflect the municipal demarcations that took effect in August 2016). Census 2011 data is available at municipalities.co.za, including historical information for disestablished municipalities. Refer to statssa.gov.za for data and publications from Stats SA.

Composition of Municipal Councils Council seats are based on figures published by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC). It reflects municipal by-election results up to 15 January 2020 in respect of Metropolitan and Local Municipalities. Regarding District Municipalities, full council information is supplied by the municipalities, where available. In cases where the council seat list is followed by ‘40% PR Seats’, the figures only reflect the 40% directly elected proportional representation seats as reported by the IEC, and not the full council. Refer to elections.org.za for information on the IEC.

Audit Outcomes Audit Outcomes are sourced from the Consolidated general report on the audit outcomes of local government, PFMA, published annually by the Auditor-General South Africa (AGSA). The full reports are available from AGSA’s offices or at agsa.co.za. The terminology used is described by AGSA as follows:

SOURCES

METHODOLOGY, SOURCES AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Clean audit outcome: The financial statements are free from material misstatements (in other words, a financially unqualified audit opinion) and there are no material findings on the quality of the annual performance report or non-compliance with legislation. Financially unqualified with findings: The financial statements contain no material misstatements. Unless the Auditor-General expresses a clean audit outcome, findings have been raised on either the annual performance report or non-compliance with legislation, or both these aspects. Qualified audit opinion: The financial statements contain material misstatements in specific amounts, or there is insufficient evidence for the Auditor-General to conclude that specific amounts included in the financial statements are not materially misstated. Adverse audit opinion: The financial statements contain material misstatements that are not confined to specific amounts, or the misstatements represent a substantial portion of the financial statements. Disclaimer of audit opinion: The auditee provided insufficient evidence in the form of documentation on which to base an audit opinion. The lack of sufficient evidence is not confined to specific amounts, or represents a substantial portion of the information contained in the financial statements. The Handbook includes financials for the 2018/19 financial year. At the time of compiling this edition, the 2018/19 audits were still being finalised by AGSA and reports for the 2018/19 year were generally not available. The audit result is, therefore, shown as ‘n/a’.

Financial Information Comprehensive financial information is available on our website – municipalities.co.za. The individual sources are indicated and links to source documentation are provided under ‘Resources’. Financial information is sourced from figures made available by the National Treasury at http://mfma.treasury.gov.za. • The figures in the Handbook are sourced from the Consolidated S71 C1 Schedules, published quarterly by National Treasury as part of the S71 in-year management process, or the A1 Schedules, published by National Treasury as part of the annual MTREF process. The website indicates the specific source for each year’s figures. • Schedule C1 and A1 reports are submitted in the format for municipal financial statements as prescribed by the Municipal Budget and Reporting Regulations. The figures are standardised to the prescribed format and may differ from the Audited Financial Statements. Where we have captured figures directly from the Audited Financial Statements, we have endeavoured to follow the prescribed format. • The figures for ‘Total Revenue’ include ‘Transfers recognised – capital’ and ‘Contributions recognised – capital & contributed assets’ as per the Schedule C1 or A1 format. • The figures for ‘Surplus/(Deficit)’ reflect ‘Surplus/(Deficit) after capital transfers & contributions’ plus ‘Share of surplus/(deficit) of associate’. • All financial figures are rounded to the nearest R’000. R0 values are reflected as ‘-’. Values that are unavailable are reflected as ‘n/a’. (Continued on page 9)

Unauthorised, Irregular, Fruitless and Wasteful Expenditure is supplied by the Auditor-General South Africa (AGSA). If the figures are unavailable in this report, they may be sourced from the municipality’s Annual Financial Statements. While we have aggregated the figures for the purpose of the Handbook, each type of expenditure is distinct from the other. The terminology is described by AGSA as follows: Unauthorised Expenditure: Expenditure that was in excess of the amount budgeted or allocated by government to the auditee, or that was not incurred in accordance with the purpose for which it was intended. Irregular Expenditure: Expenditure incurred without complying with applicable legislation. Fruitless and wasteful expenditure: Expenditure that was made in vain and could have been avoided had reasonable care been exercised. This includes penalties and interest on late payments, as well as payments for services not utilised or goods not received. The separate figures for each type of expenditure are available at municipalities.co.za.

Employment Statistics Comprehensive employment statistics are available at municipalities.co.za. Employment statistics are sourced from the Non-financial census of municipalities, published annually by Statistics South Africa (Stats SA). In particular, the municipal data is sourced from the Statistical Release P9115 Unit Data (2017/18), available at statssa.gov.za. In normal circumstances, StatSA would have released the 2018/19 Non-financial census of municipalities in June 2020. Due to Covid-19 the release was delayed until March 2021, after the publication of this Handbook. When the data is released it will be added to the municipalities.co.za website. The data is collected by Stats SA via a questionnaire completed by municipalities. Stats SA also uses personal visits, telephone, fax, email and post as methods to collect data. When assessing the employment data, it should be noted that: • The data is self-reported by municipalities and is not audited at individual level. • Municipalities may have reported vacancies on a differing basis, depending on different interpretations of the reporting of funded and/or unfunded positions. Some municipalities indicated no vacancies at all in the surveys. • ‘Total Employment Positions’ (in our reporting) combines fulltime, part-time and vacant positions. Significant variances in year-on-year numbers may be explained by increases or decreases in temporary or part-time positions. • ‘Managerial Positions’ (in our reporting) combines S57 managerial positions (as defined by the Local Government Municipal Systems Act) and all other managerial positions according to the municipal organogram. • The P9115 statistical release contains the preliminary results of the 2018 Non-financial census of municipalities and the revised figures for 2017. In the event of revised figures being obtained for 2018, they will be incorporated into the 2019 Non-financial census of municipalities (if applicable). • ‘Total Employment Cost’ (in our reporting) combines ‘Employee costs’ and ‘Remuneration of councillors’ as sourced from the MFMA S71 4th Quarter Schedule C reports (see Financial Information above).

Service Delivery Statistics Comprehensive service delivery statistics are available at municipalities.co.za.

Unauthorised, Irregular, Fruitless and Wasteful (UIF&W) Expenditure

Service delivery statistics are sourced from the Non-financial census of municipalities, published annually by Statistics South Africa (Stats SA). In particular, the municipal data is sourced from the Statistical Release P9115 Unit Data (2017/18), available at statssa.gov.za. In normal circumstances, StatSA would have released the 2018/19 Non-financial census of municipalities in June 2020. Due to Covid-19 the release was delayed until March 2021, after the publication of this Handbook. When the data is released it will be added to the municipalities.co.za website. The data is collected by Stats SA via a questionnaire completed by municipalities. Stats SA also uses personal visits, telephone, fax, email and post as methods to collect data. When assessing the service delivery data, it should be noted that: • The data is self-reported by municipalities and is not audited at individual level. • The data is not necessarily comparable with the Stats SA population census of 2011 and/or household survey data, mainly due to: - the data source being municipalities as opposed to households - the different definitions of household - differing reporting periods. • ‘Households’, as reflected in this data, is defined as a domestic entity to which the service is provided and which receives one bill (if the service is billed), alternatively known as a delivery point. This concept is often referred to as a household by municipalities, but this is not strictly correct, as households and consumer units do not coincide one-to-one, particularly in blocks of flats, on stands where there are multiple households in the same dwelling or in additional dwellings, such as garden flats, backyard rooms, etc. and in the case of public taps. Most municipalities do not have a system for identifying multiple households served by one billing unit or delivery point. • ‘Households – Free Basic Services’ means the number of Households that have access to free basic services. Where a municipality has implemented broad-based targeting or technical targeting to allocate free basic services, everyone may receive a basic level of free services, e.g. the first 6Kl of water. In this case, the figures for free basic services may be equal to the total number of Households served. • ‘Total Customer Entities Served’ includes both domestic Households and non-domestic consumer units, e.g. industrial, commercial, schools, clinics and hospitals, government departments, etc. Not all municipalities have a system to distinguish domestic Households and non-domestic consumer units. • The P9115 statistical release contains the preliminary results of the 2018 Non-financial census of municipalities and the revised figures for 2017. In the event of revised figures being obtained for 2018, they will be incorporated into the 2019 Non-financial census of municipalities (if applicable).

Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) We acknowledge and thank the Department: Government Communication and Information System for providing invaluable source material. We have made use of the South Africa Yearbook, published annually by the GCIS, in compiling the overview and provincial introductory information.

ADVERTORIAL

Doves and diversified it into insurance, medical aid, retirement fund and pharmaceutical. Our objective was to enter high value and high profit sectors of the economy.

What does it take to be an effective and successful leader? Hire people who are smarter than you, listen to them and lead them with respect.

Interview with Khandani Msibi CEO, 3Sixty Global Solutions Group

You have an impressive history of rescuing and revolutionising companies. What strategies did you use in this regard for rescuing 3Sixty Global Solutions Group from the brink of closure? We grew 3Sixty from just being a funeral service company under the brand name

Where do you see your company in 5 years’ time? My vision for the company is to become a listed pan African Group with significant global presence.

What products and services does 3Sixty Global Solutions Group offer? We offer pharmaceutical products, Herbal Health products, life insurance, medical aid, retirement fund administration, funeral services and cremations.

It is my duty to show that women are just as capable of running large corporations and that we are a force to be reckoned with. It is also my duty to show young girls growing up that they can reach far greater heights. The sky is not the limit, we can go higher.

What lessons have you learnt about being a successful woman in a largely male-dominated business space?

Interview with Minki Rasenyalo 3Sixty Global Solutions Group Executive Insurance and Funeral Cluster

Stand your ground and be firm in your beliefs. Everyone reacts to you in a manner in which you present yourself, and as a woman, it is very important to stand firm in your ability and knowledge of how to run a successful business. Never want to be like the men, but rather a successful female leader that strives to make other females a success too.

What led you to refocus your company into financial services when you took over in 2010?

As the first black woman to be appointed CEO of Doves Group, how do you ensure that other women have the opportunity to follow in your footsteps? As the first black woman CEO of Doves Group, I have a responsibility far greater than ensuring the survival and growth of this company.

3SixtyGroup.indd 2

Our customers were at the centre of this decision. Funerals can be very expensive, and with most of the South African population living in poverty, those families often need a helping hand to ensure that their loved ones are given a dignified send-off. We have worked hard to create affordable and sufficient insurance packages that e nsure that these families can afford a dignified funeral.

How has your company been impacted by the present economic crisis? We have been impacted because our clients have been impacted, however, due to the diversification of the Group, we have held well as each of the subsidiaries felt the downturn differently. Overall, we have had more good than bad news.

How will your company aid in the recovery of the South African economy? We would like to lead a biotechnological revolution. We set ourselves a goal of launching 100 products in 100 months, including Covid-19 diagnostics, therapeutics (treament/prophylaxes) and vaccines. These products will be manufactured in South Africa for the global market, creating demand for labour and materials. Furthermore, we intend to establish six centres of excellence and help create 100 blackowned biotech companies which will also impact SA positively.

On the business side of things, the evergrowing insurance book ensures vital cash flows for Doves.

How has the Covid-19 pandemic and ensuing economic crisis impacted on the Doves Group? It is no secret that the death toll during this pandemic is far greater than that of the same period in the previous year. This has put immense strain on our branches having to deal with so many funerals per week, especially in hotspot areas. Our staff on the ground have to be applauded on this one, from branch managers who plan the week, to the funeral arrangers who meet with the bereaved families, to the funeral directors that conduct the actual funerals. It has been a very tough time with the amount of work that has been coming through, but with proper planning and implementation no task is impossible.

How is your company assisting with the recovery from the pandemic and its effects on the South African economy? We have worked very hard as a business to ensure that we survive the pandemic. We are proud to say that we did not find ourselves having to restructure or retrench within the business. With the high rate of retrenchment and unemployment, we are proud to have been able to assist in continuing with our staff and not adding them to the unemployment statistics.

OVERVIEW

OVERVIEW OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT IN SOUTH AFRICA

S

outh Africa is a constitutional democracy with a three-tier system of government and an independent judiciary. The powers of the lawmakers (legislative authorities), government (executive authorities) and courts (judicial authorities) are separate from one another.

• • • • •

Government consists of national, provincial and local spheres. The national, provincial and local levels of government all have legislative and executive authority in their own spheres. It is a stated intention in the Constitution that the country should be run on a system of cooperative governance. The three spheres of government are defined in the Constitution as ‘distinctive, interdependent and interrelated’.

The remainder of South Africa’s territory is administered by 44 district municipalities (also known as Category C municipalities). Each district municipality is further subdivided into various smaller local municipalities (also known as Category B municipalities). As an example, the territory administered by the Sedibeng District Municipality encompasses the Emfuleni, Lesedi and Midvaal Local Municipalities. District and local municipalities share legislative and executive authority in respect of their commonly administered areas. District councils are primarily responsible for capacity building and district-wide planning.

In terms of Chapter 7 of the Constitution of South Africa, the local sphere of government is made up of municipalities, which form the lowest formal level of democratically elected government in South Africa. A municipality has the right to govern, on its own initiative, the local government affairs of its community, subject to national and provincial legislation. The executive and legislative authority of a municipality is vested in its Municipal Council. The objects of local government are to: • provide democratic and accountable government for local communities • ensure the provision of services to communities in a sustainable manner • promote social and economic development • promote a safe and healthy environment • encourage the involvement of communities and community organisations in matters of local government. While Chapter 7 of the Constitution provides the foundation for the establishment of municipalities, various Acts of Parliament have further defined these municipal structures since the inception of the current constitution, the most important of these being the: • Intergovernmental Relations Framework Act • Local Government: Municipal Demarcation Act • Local Government: Municipal Electoral Act • Local Government: Municipal Finance Management Act • Local Government: Municipal Property Rates Act • Local Government: Municipal Structures Act • Local Government: Municipal Systems Act • Municipal Fiscal Powers and Functions Act.

City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality.

There are a total of 257 municipalities in South Africa, comprising eight metropolitan, 44 district and 205 local municipalities. A number of significant demarcation changes became effective after the 2016 local government elections. The demarcation changes reduced the number of local municipalities from 226 to 205 and the total number of municipalities in South Africa from 278 to 257. The political management of municipalities is made up of an elected Municipal Council. The term of a Municipal Council may not be more than five years. The Municipal Council makes decisions on exercising its powers and performing its functions, including electing its office bearers, as well as appointing its executive and other committees. The Municipal Council employs the executive management and personnel that are necessary for the effective performance of its functions.

Local Government Elections Local government elections are held once every five years. The next municipal elections are due to be held in 2021. All South African citizens over the age of 18 are eligible to vote. The Constitution places all elections and referendums in the country in all three spheres of government under the control of the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC), established in terms of the Electoral Commission Act.

There are three kinds of municipalities in South Africa, metropolitan, local and district municipalities (also known as Category A, B and C municipalities).

The obligations of the IEC are to: • manage elections of national, provincial and municipal legislative bodies • ensure that those elections are free and fair • declare the results of those elections • compile and maintain a voters’ roll.

Metropolitan municipalities have been established to administer South Africa’s most urbanised areas. Metropolitan municipalities have exclusive municipal executive and legislative authority in their respective areas. There are eight metropolitan municipalities in South Africa: • Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality • City of Cape Town Metropolitan Municipality • City of Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality

The duties of the IEC are to: • compile and maintain a register of parties • undertake and promote research into electoral matters • develop and promote the development of electoral expertise and technology in all spheres of government • continuously review electoral laws and proposed electoral laws, and make recommendations • promote voter education

Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA) Helen Jobson Photographer / Shutterstock.com

The Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs is responsible for facilitating cooperative governance, to support all spheres of government and to assist the institution of traditional leadership to transform itself into a strategic partner of government in the development of communities. CoGTA oversees the implementation of the following legislation applicable to local government. The Local Government: Municipal Property Rates Act regulates the power of a municipality to impose property rates, excludes certain properties from rating in the national interest, provides fair and equitable valuation methods of properties, and for municipalities to implement a transparent and fair system of exemptions, reductions and rebates through their rating policies. The Local Government: Municipal Finance Management Act is aimed at modernising municipal budgeting and financial management. It also introduces a governance framework for separate entities created by municipalities. The Act is a critical element in the overall transformation of local government in South Africa. It fosters transparency through budget and reporting requirements. The Local Government: Municipal Systems Act establishes a framework for planning, performance-management systems, effective use of resources, and organisational change in a business context. The Act also establishes a system for municipalities to report on their performance, and provides residents with an opportunity to compare this performance with that of other municipalities. It also regulates public-private partnerships. The Act allows municipalities significant power to corporatise their services, to establish utilities for service delivery, or to enter into partnerships with other service providers. The Act provides for the adoption of a credit-control policy for municipalities, which will provide for the termination of services in the event of non-payment. Municipalities have the power to pass by-laws to implement the policy. The Local Government: Municipal Systems Amendment Act is aimed at professionalising local government for improved service delivery and performance management, while also instilling a people-centred local government mindset in municipalities. A key objective of the Act is to progressively align the systems of municipal administration and human resource management with those of the Public Service in national and provincial government. The aim of the Act, among other things, is to: • professionalise local government by ensuring that the administrative apparatus of municipalities is staffed by appropriately qualified and competent persons to improve service delivery • require that employment contracts and performance agreements of municipal managers (and managers directly accountable to municipal managers) are consistent with the uniform systems and procedures set nationally • extend the Minister’s regulatory power to make regulations relating to macro-benefits such as medical aid and pension benefits after consultation with the ministers of health and finance. The Local Government: Municipal Structures Act provides for ward committees whose tasks, among other things, are to: • prepare, implement and review integrated development plans (IDPs)

• establish, implement and review municipalities’ performancemanagement systems • monitor and review municipalities’ performances • prepare municipalities’ budgets • participate in decisions about the provision of municipal services • communicate and disseminate information on governanc matters.

Local Government Turnaround Strategy (LGTAS) In 2009, an assessment of the state of local government found that problems in municipalities included poor governance and accountability, weak financial management, and a high vacancy rate in critical senior management posts. The findings further indicated an inability in some municipalities to deliver on the core set of critical municipal services. The findings pointed to a need to do things differently and respond directly to the findings of those assessments. In reaction, the Local Government Turnaround Strategy was introduced as a government programme of action and a blueprint for better service delivery aimed at responsive, accountable, effective and efficient local government. Five focus areas, aimed at fast-tracking implementation of the strategy, have been identified. These are: • service delivery • governance • financial management • infrastructure development • fighting corruption. The department aims to review all pieces of legislation that impede service delivery. In this regard, more than 300 sections of legislation that fall under this category have been identified and reviews undertaken.

Municipal Support Agent (MISA) In May 2012, the Municipal Support Agent was proclaimed as a government agency as part of the LGTAS. The purpose of MISA is to be an institutional mechanism to manage and coordinate hands-on, targeted infrastructure development and technical capacity support without eroding the constitutional powers and functions of municipalities and other spheres of government.

Municipal Infrastructure Grant (MIG) The Municipal Infrastructure Grant is aimed at eradicating municipal infrastructure backlogs in poor communities to ensure the provision of basic services such as water, sanitation, roads and community lighting. CoGTA is responsible for managing and transferring the MIG and provides support to provinces and municipalities on implementing MIG projects. (Continued on page 15)

Integrated Development Plans (IDP) In terms of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, all municipalities are required to prepare and formally adopt IDPs. Integrated development planning is a process by which municipalities prepare five-year strategic plans that are reviewed annually in consultation with communities and other stakeholders. The aim is to achieve service delivery and development goals in municipal areas in an effective and sustainable way. IDPs must, among other things, include: • the municipal council's vision for the long-term development of the municipality • an assessment of the existing level of development in the municipality and an identification of communities which do not have access to basic municipal services • the council's development priorities and objectives, including its local economic development aims and its internal transformation needs • the council's development strategies. which must be aligned with any national or provincial sectoral plans and planning requirements • a spatial development framework • the council's operational strategies • applicable disaster management plans • a financial plan and budget projection for the next three years • key performance indicators and performance targets.

Local Economic Development (LED) LED is an approach towards economic development that allows and encourages local people to work together to achieve sustainable economic growth and development, thereby bringing economic benefits and improved quality of life for all residents in a local municipal area. LED is intended to maximise the economic potential of municipal localities and enhance the resilience of macro-economic growth through increased local economic growth, employment creation and development initiatives within the context of sustainable development. The ‘local’ in economic development points to the fact that the political jurisdiction at local level is often the most appropriate place for economic intervention, as it carries alongside it the accountability and legitimacy of a democratically elected body. LED programmes provide support in the following areas: • developing and reviewing national policy, strategy and guidelines on LED

• providing direct and hands-on support to provincial and local government • managing the LED Fund • managing and providing technical support to Nodal Economic Development Planning • facilitating, coordinating and monitoring donor programmes • assisting LED capacity-building processes. Through these interventions and resources, local role-players and interest groups are mobilised for the sake of achieving economic growth, and with the aim of creating jobs to reduce poverty.

National and Provincial Treasuries The National Treasury is comprised of the Minister of Finance, together with the national department or departments responsible for financial and fiscal matters. The Minister is the head of the National Treasury. The Constitution confers extensive powers on national government to determine the financial management framework of all organs of state, in all spheres of government. National government must, through national legislation, determine uniform treasury norms and standards. The National Treasury is further expected to monitor and enforce these norms. The National Treasury, therefore, not only implements the budget of the national government, but also plays a financial oversight role over other organs of state in all spheres of government. The National Treasury, together with the provincial treasuries, are responsible for administering the Municipal Finance Management Act (the MFMA), which is the central piece of legislation regulating all financial matters of municipalities.

Municipal Finance Management Act (MFMA) The Municipal Finance Management Act aims to modernise budget and financial management practices in municipalities in order to maximise the capacity of the municipalities to deliver services to all their residents, customers and users. It also gives effect to the principle of transparency as required by sections 215 and 216 of the Constitution. The MFMA must be read together with three other critical pieces of legislation: the Municipal Structures Act, the Municipal Systems Act and the Municipal Property Rates Act. (Continued on page 16)

THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT HANDBOOK SOUTH AFRICA 2021 | 015

Editorial - Overview.indd 15

OVERVIEW

(Continued from page 15) The object of the MFMA is to secure sound and sustainable management of the fiscal and financial affairs of municipalities and municipal entities by establishing norms and standards and other requirements for: • ensuring transparency, accountability and appropriate lines of responsibility • the management of revenues, expenditures, assets and liabilities • budgetary and financial planning processes • borrowing • the handling of financial problems in municipalities • supply chain management • other financial matters. In terms of the MFMA, the National Treasury may, in respect of any municipality or municipal entity: • monitor their budgets and the implementation of their budgets, including their expenditure, revenue collection and borrowing • investigate any system of financial management and internal control and recommend improvements • take appropriate steps if a municipality or municipal entity commits a breach of the PGMA, including the stopping of funds to a municipality if it commits a serious or persistent material breach of applicable legislation and regulations • take any other appropriate steps necessary to perform its functions effectively. The Provincial Treasuries are tasked with: • monitoring compliance with the MFMA, the preparation of budgets, the monthly outcome of those budgets and the submission of reports • assisting municipalities in the preparation of their budgets • exercising any powers and performing any duties delegated by the National Treasury • taking appropriate steps if a municipality or municipal entity commits a breach of the MFMA.

Funding and Division of Revenue Local government plays a critical and complementary role in eliminating poverty and reducing inequality. Municipalities deliver basic services such as water, electricity, sanitation and solid waste removal. Municipalities also manage extensive public road networks, and support or provide public transport services. They also directly manage aspects of planning and regulatory systems that control land use, influence infrastructure roll-out and facilitate economic activity. The Constitution requires a division of nationally raised resources between national, provincial and local government. This is done through the Division of Revenue Bill, which is tabled with the national budget. Transfers to local government are made through the equitable share and conditional grants. The equitable shares are determined by formulas that take into account demographic and developmental factors. Conditional grants are designed to achieve specific objectives, and municipalities must fulfil certain conditions to receive them. Local government raises revenue mainly from user charges, rates and taxes. Only a quarter of its overall spending is financed from the National Revenue Fund through the division of revenue. However, poor and rural municipalities rely heavily on national transfers because they have much lower tax bases than large cities. Consequently, government directs higher per capita transfers to poor and rural municipalities, while working with urban municipalities to leverage their own resources to increase investment in infrastructure. In terms of the National Treasury's Budget Review 2020, transfers to municipalities will account for 8.5% (or R125 billion) of nationally raised revenue for the 2019/20 budget year.

Auditor-General South Africa (AGSA) The Auditor-General of South Africa is the supreme audit institution of South Africa. It is the only institution that, by law, has to audit and report on how the government is spending the South African taxpayers’ money. Although AGSA audits the public sector, it is not part of it. AGSA is a ‘Chapter 9’ institution, meaning its mandate is outlined in Chapter 9 of the Constitution. This ensures its independence. It is also not bound by any public service rules and regulations. AGSA annually produces audit reports on all government departments, public entities, municipalities and public institutions. Over and above these entity-specific reports, the audit outcomes are analysed in general reports that cover both the Public Finance Management Act and MFMA cycles. In addition, reports on discretionary audits, performance audits, and other special audits are also produced.

Municipal Demarcation Board The Municipal Demarcation Board is an independent authority responsible for the determination of municipal boundaries. The Board’s status as an independent authority is also protected by the Local Government: Municipal Demarcation Act and various judgements by the Constitutional Court. In addition to the determinations and redeterminations of municipal boundaries, the Board is also mandated by legislation to declare the district management areas, to delimit wards for local elections, and to assess the capacity of municipalities to perform their functions.

South African Local Government Association (SALGA) Salga is a listed public entity, established in terms of Section 21 of the Companies Act, 1973 and recognised by the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs in terms of the Organised Local Government Act. Salga represents local government on numerous intergovernmental forums such as the PCC, Minister and MECs Forum, the Budget Forum, the NCOP, and the Financial and Fiscal Commission. Salga aims, among other things, to: • transform local government to enable it to fulfil its developmental role • enhance the role of provincial local government associations as provincial representatives and consultative bodies on local government • raise the profile of local government • ensure full participation of women • act as the national employers’ organisation for municipal and provincial member employers • provide legal assistance to its members. Salga is funded through a combination of sources, including a national government grant, membership fees from provincial and local government associations that are voluntary members, and donations from the donor community for specific projects.

The Eastern Cape is located on the east coast of South Africa between the Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal Provinces. Inland, it borders the Northern Cape and Free State Provinces, as well as Lesotho. The region boasts remarkable natural diversity, ranging from the semi-arid Great Karoo to the forests of the Wild Coast and the Keiskamma Valley, the fertile Langkloof and the mountainous southern Drakensberg region. The Eastern Cape’s main feature is its spectacular coastline bordering the Indian Ocean. It covers an area of 168 966km2 and has a population of 6 996 976. It is the second-largest province in South Africa by surface area and has the third-largest population. The capital is Bhisho. Other major cities and towns include Port Elizabeth, East London, Makhanda (Grahamstown), Mthatha (Umtata), Graaf Reinet, Cradock and Port St Johns. The Eastern Cape is one of South Africa’s poorest provinces incorporating large areas of South Africa’s former homelands. The Eastern Cape has excellent agricultural and forestry potential. The fertile Langkloof Valley in the south-west has enormous deciduous fruit orchards, while the Karoo interior is an important sheep-farming area. The Alexandria-Grahamstown area produces pineapples, chicory and dairy products, while coffee and tea are cultivated at Magwa. People in the former Transkei region are dependent on the farming of cattle, maize and sorghum. The metropolitan economies of Port Elizabeth and East London are based primarily on manufacturing, the most important industry being motor manufacturing. The province is the hub of South Africa’s automotive industry. The Eastern Cape is divided into two metropolitan municipalities (Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality and Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality) and six district municipalities, which are further subdivided into 31 local municipalities.

municipality situated within the Alfred Nzo District in the Eastern Cape Province. It is one of four municipalities in the district. It is located on the R61 road connecting the KwaZulu-Natal South Coastal Boundary to the N2 highway. A female-dominated society, the municipality makes efforts to integrate and incorporate women in key decision-making roles within the institution to reflect this demographic. The majority of households in Mbizana are of a rural nature. This results in natural resources providing a strong base for basic survival as those living in rural areas turn to subsistence farming for their livelihoods. Mbizana prides itself on a cultural diversity that includes a variety of tribes such as the Xhosas, Mpondos, Sothos and Ngunis. However, the population is dominated by the Mpondo tribe, which has its own unique dialect, isiMpondo, a soft mixture of isiXhosa and isiZulu. The municipality stretches between the Umtamvuna and Mtentu Rivers, with pristine beaches and scenic estuaries. This coastline is part of the famous Wild Coast and Pondoland centre, which boasts valuable flora and fauna found nowhere else in the world. It is also home to one of the greatest sons of Africa, Oliver Reginald Tambo, who was a revolutionary leader and the longest-serving ANC president.

OVERVIEW Description: The Emalahleni Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated in the north-eastern part of the Chris Hani District Municipality in the Eastern Cape. It is one of six municipalities in the district. The municipality was established during 2000 and comprises three rural towns, with more than 200 villages. Much of the municipal area was formerly in the Transkei. The quality of life in the rural villages is generally poor, marked by poverty and lack of access to services and amenities. Unemployment is high, and most households rely on social grants and remittances from family members working elsewhere. Agriculture is limited to low-level subsistence farming, producing enough maize for personal use, traditional livestock farming and sorghum production, which is formalised and produced for the market. Wool production is one of the upcoming sources of income in the area for the emerging communal farmers.

EASTERN CAPE

The municipality claims the most youthful population, as well as the highest rates of poverty and unemployment, in the district, coupled with a high dependency ratio. The economy is underperforming and currently fails to create needed jobs and revenues. A dedicated LED strategy has been developed in order to guide interventions in turning this situation around. The municipality’s low productivity score points to the low GDP per worker (formal and informal), a relative shortage of skills available to the economy, and low growth. On a broad scale, the Engcobo Municipality has some striking features: it is a peripheral area in terms of the national economy, is underdeveloped, has a fragmented settlement pattern, has a low-density rural settlement environment, and its resource base is under pressure. On the scale of urban development, Engcobo Town is classified as a Sub-District Development Node by CHDM (i.e. it is among a group of towns deemed to be on a second tier below the dominant district node of Komani). This means that Engcobo is understood to have an influence (reach or catchment population) beyond simply its local area and that it draws people to the town to access goods and services from a broader area (i.e. in some cases even from neighbouring municipalities). However, Engcobo may also currently be described as a lowdensity urban environment. In spite of its low density and intensity of development, Engcobo’s business centre is thriving, though it does not function optimally due to overcrowding and a lack of facilities serving both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Business in the town is reliant on commuters (rural consumers) and there is no mass of resident consumers. This limits the range of commercial and social facilities that the private sector provides in town and inhibits the development of a more vibrant urban character.

It is the largest of the six municipalities in the district, making up over a third of its geographical area.

The area has a rich historical background dating back to the 18th century, with a number of monuments and key places of interest. The Enoch Mgijima municipal area is an economic hub, due to its strategic position in the middle of the national corridors to the Gauteng, Western Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Northern Cape and Free State Provinces. Parts of the municipality are developed with the relevant infrastructure so that modes of transport such as railway, road and a small airport are available to be utilised. Other parts of the region are experiencing a low economic growth rate, with high levels of unemployment and poverty in the towns.

OVERVIEW Description: The Elundini Local Municipality (ELM) is a Category B municipality located within the Joe Gqabi District in the north-eastern portion of the Eastern Cape Province. The municipality is bounded by the Alfred Nzo District in the north, Chris Hani District in the south, OR Tambo District in the east, and Lesotho and Senqu in the west. It is the smallest of three municipalities in the district, making up a quarter of its geographical area. The ELM is one of the most scenic and attractive areas of the province, with considerable potential lying in its deep, fertile soils and high rainfall. Compared to the other municipalities in the Joe Gqabi District, Elundini has prospects of significant growth and upliftment in the quality of life for its residents due to its relative abundance of natural resources. The urban areas and commercial farming district are the highest employers, where people have found employment in the agriculture, commercial and service sectors. There are very low levels of employment in the rural settlements. This can be partly attributed to the fact that these areas do not have a strong economic base, and partly to the fact that most inhabitants are involved in subsistence-related activities with little surplus being produced for economic profit.

Due to the migrant system in operation in South Africa, the impact of recessionary downturns in the economy elsewhere (such as in the mining industry, Gauteng and Cape Town) have had an impact on the Elundini area. There is still a heavy reliance on income from migrant sources.

It was established by the amalgamation of the Gariep and Maletswai Local Municipalities in August 2016.

It is characterised by mountains, hills and valleys. This area is well known for its stock farming, of which sheep production is one of the dominating sectors. The streams and rivers team with fish, trout being a common species. Rock foundations have beautiful artwork made years ago by the founders of the area – the Khoisan. A thermal springs resort, named Aliwal Spa, is located within the municipal area and produces salty water, rich in minerals, from underground.

The Free State is located in the geographical centre of South Africa, bordered by the Northern Cape, Eastern Cape, North West, Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng Provinces, as well as Lesotho. The Free State is a rural province of farmland, mountains, goldfields and widely dispersed towns. Although the Free State is the third-largest province in South Africa, it has the second-smallest population and the second-lowest population density. It covers an area of 129 825km2 and has a population of 2 834 714 – 5.1% of the national population. Its capital is Bloemfontein, which is South Africa’s judicial capital. Other important towns include Welkom, Kroonstad, Sasolburg and Bethlehem. The economy is dominated by agriculture, mining and manufacturing. Known as the ‘bread basket’ of South Africa, about 90% of the province is under cultivation for crop production. It produces approximately 34% of the total maize production of South Africa, 37% of wheat, 53% of sorghum, 33% of potatoes, 18% of red meat, 30% of groundnuts and 15% of wool. The province is the world’s fifth-largest gold producer, with mining the major employer. It is a leader in the chemicals industry, being home to the giant synthetic fuels company, Sasol. The Vredefort Dome, 10km in diameter, about 100km south-west of Johannesburg, is South Africa’s seventh World Heritage Site. The Free State is divided into one metropolitan municipality (Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality) and four district municipalities, which are further subdivided into 18 local municipalities.

OVERVIEW

Botshabelo

Description: The Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality is a Category A municipality. It is situated in the Free State Province, in the central interior of South Africa. The Free State is bordered by the Gauteng, Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and North West Provinces, as well as by the neighbouring country of Lesotho. Mangaung, meaning ’Place of the Cheetahs’, accentuates the vibrant, dynamic and energetic character of the tourism industry in the ’At the Heart of it All’. The economy is strongly driven by the government sector, which has seen the fastest growth in the last five years as a result of increased government programmes in livelihoods improvement interventions. The finance sector is the second-fastest growing sector due to very active estate and construction activities. Small businesses have a major role to play in the South African, and especially the Mangaung, economy in terms of employment creation, income generation and output growth. It is estimated that more than 12 million people in South Africa are actively involved in the SMME sector, which accounts for approximately 60% of all employment in the economy and 40% of output. In an area such as Mangaung, with its relatively high levels of unemployment and poverty, it can be expected that the SMME sector plays an even more important role in job creation and poverty alleviation. The informal economy makes an important contribution to the economic and social life of Mangaung. Due to the decline in formal employment and consequent increase in unemployment, many people seek alternative means of earning an income. Area: 9 886km2 Cities/Towns: Bloemfontein, Botshabelo, Dewetsdorp, Mangaung, Soutpan, Thaba Nchu, Van Stadensrus, Wepener Main Economic Sectors: Community services (35.3%), finance (26.8%), trade (16%), transport (11.8%), manufacturing (3.5%)

AUDIT OUTCOME

OVERVIEW Description: The Metsimaholo Local Municipality is a Category B municipality located within the Fezile Dabi District of the Free State Province. It is the smallest of four municipalities in the district, making up 8% of its geographical area. The municipality was established in 2000 through the amalgamation of the then Sasolburg, Deneysville and Oranjeville Transitional Local Councils. The dominance of Sasolburg, owing to its population density and its proximity to the economically active City of Johannesburg, provides the area with the opportunity of being declared the head office of the entire Metsimaholo Municipality. Metsimaholo means ’big water’ in Sesotho. Area: 1 717km2 Cities/Towns: Deneysville, Kragbron, Oranjeville, Sasolburg Main Economic Sectors: Manufacturing, retail, community services

OVERVIEW Description: The Moqhaka Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated within the southern part of the Fezile Dabi District in the Free State Province. It is the largest of four municipalities in the district, making up over a third of its geographical area. The former Kroonstad, Steynsrus and Viljoenskroon Transitional Local Councils and sections of the Riemland, Kroonkop and Koepel Transitional Rural Councils are included in the municipality. The seat of local government is Kroonstad. The community name is the south Sesotho word for ’crown’. The general tendency of migration from rural to urban areas is also occurring in the area, as is the case in the rest of the Free State Province. In comparison to the other municipalities within the Fezile Dabi District, it appears as if Moqhaka is significantly less urbanised. The Greater Kroonstad area is the centre of a large agricultural community that plays an important role in the economy of the district. Subsequently, industrial activities contribute significantly to the district’s economy. The Department of Correctional Services and the School of Engineers military bases are situated in the town. Kroonstad has recently become a distinguished holiday destination due to the ultra-modern and popular holiday resort of Kroonpark, adjacent to the Vals River. The urban area is situated adjacent to the N1 National Road, and located adjacent to one of the largest and most important four-way railway junctions in South Africa. The Viljoenskroon/Rammulotsi urban area is located within an area of extreme agricultural significance. The urban area plays a significant role in providing residential opportunities to the adjacent goldfields and mining activities in the North West province. The Provincial Roads P15/1 and P15/2 from Kroonstad to Klerksdorp in the North West province extend through the area from north to south. The Steynsrus/Matlwangtlwang urban area is situated approximately 45km east of Kroonstad and 92km west of Bethlehem. The major link road between Bethlehem and Kroonstad stretches adjacent to the urban area. Area: 7 925km2 Cities/Towns: Kroonstad, Renovaal, Steynsrus, Vierfontein, Viljoenskroon Main Economic Sectors: Agiculture, commercial transport, business services, mining

Other prominent topographical features include the Vredefort Dome in Parys. The form of the dome consists of a central cone of granite surrounded by concentric ridges of quartzite belonging to the Witwatersrand System. The Parys District has unique natural and environmental assets, like the Vaal River, with several islands in the proximity of Parys, and the Vredefort Dome, that present exceptional tourism potential. Parys has a well-developed airfield that supports commercial and tourism development in the area. It has a strong commercial component and provides a wide range of services regarding health, education and professional services to the district. Vredefort is the only town that formed the former Vredefort District. The former Heilbron District is predominantly an agricultural area, although major manufacturing industries contribute largely to the Gross Geographic Product of the district. Koppies is located in an area of agricultural significance and mainly provides services in this regard to the surrounding rural areas.

They are directly dependent on these large urban centres for institutional and commercial support. Three major rivers feature prominently in the Free State Province, of which two flow through the Nala Municipality. The Vals River runs from east to west through the town of Bothaville towards the Vaal River, which forms the north-western boundary of the municipality, and the Vet River flows just south of the Wesselsbron district and forms the southern boundary of the Nala region. Both the rivers play a significant role in the provision of water to Bothaville and Wesselsbron respectively. The topography of the area is homogenous, with moderate slopes. The only significant natural feature is the sensitive wetland system found just south of Wesselsbron.

MOHOKARE LOCAL MUNICIPALITY (FS163) CONTACT DETAILS POSTAL: PO Box 20, Zastron, 9950 PHYSICAL: Hoofd Street, Zastron TEL: 051 673 9600 FAX: 051 673 1550 WEB: www.mohokare.gov.za

OVERVIEW Description: The Mohokare Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated within the Xhariep District in the south-eastern Free State. It is the smallest of three municipalities in the district, making up a quarter of its geographical area. Zastron is perhaps the best-known of the three villages in this area. At the foot of the Aasvöelberg is the famous Eye of Zastron, a 9m-wide hole through a sandstone rock. Examples of Bushman art can be found on the various farms in the area. Zastron is very close to Lesotho and a great place to start exploring. Smithfield has a peaceful, splendidly vast, unpolluted countryside, tucked neatly into a horseshoe of hills. Established in 1848 and named after Sir Harry Smith, then Governor of the Cape, Smithfield is the third-oldest town in the Free State province. Rouxville is in the middle of a number of other interesting places such as Smithfield, Aliwal, Xhariep and Zastron, and boasts the impressive Maloti Mountains as a backdrop. Situated on the N6, Rouxville was founded by Petrus Wepenaar in 1863 on the farm Zuurbult. It was named after Reverand Pieter Roux, who travelled throughout the eastern Free State for many years holding church services for local communities. During the Anglo-Boer War, all of its citizens were called up and the town was completely deserted for two years.

Gauteng is the smallest of South Africa’s provinces, covering an area of 18 178km2 or approximately 1.4% of the total surface area of South Africa. It is bordered by the Free State, North West, Limpopo and Mpumalanga Provinces. While being the smallest province, it is also the most populous, being home to 13 399 725 people. Gauteng lies on the highest part of the interior plateau on the rolling plains of South Africa’s Highveld. Its capital is Johannesburg and it also contains the city of Pretoria, as well as the East Rand, West Rand and Vaal areas. Gauteng continues to serve as the economic engine room of the country and the subcontinent, responsible for over 34.8% of the country’s GDP. Gauteng is the powerhouse of South Africa and the heart of its commercial business and industrial sectors. The most important sectors contributing to GDP are finance, real estate and business services; manufacturing; and general government services. Gauteng is also the financial services capital of Africa. More than 70 foreign banks have their head offices here, as do at least the same number of South African banks, stockbrokers and insurance giants. The major gold and diamond mining houses all have their headquarters in Johannesburg, the biggest being Anglo American and De Beers. Gold mining constitutes 80% of Gauteng’s mineral production output. Gauteng is divided into three metropolitan municipalities (City of Ekurhuleni, City of Johannesburg and City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipalities) and two district municipalities, which are further subdivided into six local municipalities.

OVERVIEW

Birchleigh !

Description: The City of Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality is a Category A municipality covers an extensive area from Germiston in the west to Springs and Nigel in the east. The former administrations of the nine towns in the former East Rand were amalgamated into the metropolitan municipality, along with the Khayalami Metropolitan Council and the Eastern Gauteng Services Council. It is one of the most densely populated areas in the province, and the country. The economy in the region is larger and more diverse than that of many small countries in Africa. It accounts for nearly a quarter of Gauteng’s economy, which in turn contributes over a third of the national Gross Domestic Product. Many of the factories for production of goods and commodities are located in Ekurhuleni, often referred to as ’Africa’s Workshop’. The network of roads, airports, rail lines, telephones, electricity grids and telecommunications found in Ekurhuleni rivals that of Europe and America. It can be regarded as the transportation hub of the country. It is home to OR Tambo International Airport; South Africa’s largest railway hub; a number of South Africa’s modern freeways and expressways; the Maputo Corridor Development; direct rail, road and air links connecting Ekurhuleni to Durban; the Blue IQ projects, with linkages to the City Deep Container terminal; the planned Gautrain rapid rail link to Johannesburg and Pretoria; and the OR Tambo International Airport Industrial Development Zone (IDZ).

Randburg

OVERVIEW located in the Gauteng Province. Johannesburg is the most advanced commercial city in Africa and the engine room of the South African and regional economy. It is a city with a unique, African character, worldclass infrastructure in the fields of telecommunications, transportation, water and power, and with globally-competitive health care and educational facilities. However, the city is also one of contrasts – home to both wealthy and poor, residents and refugees, global corporations and emerging enterprises. The demographics of Johannesburg indicate a large and ethnically diverse metropolitan area. As the largest city in South Africa, its population is defined by a long history of local and international migration. Johannesburg is home to almost five million people, accounting for about 36% of Gauteng’s population and 8% of the national population. Over the last decade the city has been growing. A key contributor to this is that the city continues to attract people from other provinces, and internationally, who are looking for better economic opportunities and quality of life. The population pyramid indicates that the city’s population is predominantly young. This can be attributed to migration from other parts of the country as young people look for jobs. Johannesburg is considered the economic hub of South Africa and is often the first choice of destination by job seekers across the country.

OVERVIEW Description: The City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality is a Category A municipality situated in the Gauteng Province. It merged with the Metsweding District, which was a consequence of the Gauteng Global City Region Strategy to reduce the number of municipalities in Gauteng to at least four by 2016. The City of Tshwane is the single-largest metropolitan municipality in the country, comprising seven regions, 105 wards and 210 councillors. Pretoria is the capital of South Africa. It has the second-largest number of embassies in the world after Washington DC. Many embassies thus call this city their home. The Union Buildings house the administrative hub of the country and have also been the setting for the presidential inaugurations of Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki and the incumbent South African president, Jacob Zuma. These sandstone buildings offer beautiful views over the City. Its rich and colourful heritage is reflected in the City’s myriad of museums, monuments and historical buildings, and is punctuated by contemporary arts and crafts markets, bringing the City alive with a unique blend of new and old.

OVERVIEW

Sebokeng

Description: The Sedibeng District Municipality is a Category C municipality situated on the southern tip of the Gauteng Province and strategically located on the border of three other provinces, namely Free State, North West and Mpumalanga. The municipality is the only area in the province that is situated on the banks of the Vaal River and Vaal Dam, covering the area formerly known as the Vaal Triangle. The municipality is a stones throw from Johannesburg along the scenic Vaal, Klip and Suikerbos Rivers. It is comprised of the Emfuleni, Lesedi and Midvaal Local Municipalities, and includes the historic townships of Evaton, Sebokeng, Boipatong, Bophelong, Sharpeville and Ratanda, which have a rich political history and heritage. It has a variety of attractions offering a vast cultural heritage and historical experience including, among others, the political breakthroughs that led to the country’s political turnabout. The Sedibeng region boasts several Heritage Sites related to the South African War of 1899-1902 and the two World Wars that followed. The Sharpeville Memorial Precinct stands as a reminder of the Sharpeville Massacre of 21 March 1960, when 69 people lost their lives while protesting the pass laws of the then apartheid South Africa. Sedibeng is the fourth-largest contributor to the Gauteng economy. The predominant economic sector in the district is the manufacturing of fabricated metal and chemicals. In the metal sector, the ArcelorMittal Steel plant, the Cape Gate Davsteel Wire and Steel plant, and the Ferromanganese plant of Samancor are the three main large baseline plants in the district, while DCDDorbyl Heavy Engineering is the biggest manufacturer of engineered products in Southern Africa. The well-developed national road network that cuts across the district to all the provinces ensures that the region remains the industrial centre of the Gauteng Province. The municipality is 40km away from Johannesburg and 80km away from Pretoria, without the high traffic volumes. The municipality offers the best opportunity for growth and development as a result of availability of land for both residential and commercial development in a picturesque and tranquil setting. The Vaal University of Technology and the North-West University’s Vaal Campus offer a wide range of graduates that provide the bulwark of employees for business and industries that seek to set up operations in Sedibeng. Area: 4 173km2 Main Economic Sectors: Manufacturing (30.8%), government (17.8%), business services (17.8%), trade (13.7%)

OVERVIEW

Muldersdrift

Description: The West Rand District Municipality is a Category C municipality located in the west of the Gauteng Province. The West Rand extends from Randfontein (the seat of the district) in the west to Roodepoort in the east, and includes the town of Krugersdorp. It is bordered by Bojanala Platinum to the north-west, City of Tshwane to the north-east, City of Johannesburg to the east, Sedibeng to the south-east, and Dr Kenneth Kaunda to the south-west. It comprises three local municipalities: Merafong, Mogale and Rand West Cities. The municipality is situated relatively closely to the hub of economic activity in Gauteng, and is transversed by major national roads, namely the N12 and N14. Its main contribution lies primarily within the mining sector, however, areas such as Krugersdorp fulfil a residential function for many people working in Johannesburg. The West Rand remains the poorest region contributing to Gauteng’s GDP. The Cradle of Humankind falls under the jurisdiction of Mogale City and Merafong City, and forms part of the World Heritage Site. Area: 4 087km2 Main Economic Sectors: Manufacturing (22%), mining (19%), community services (19%), finance (16%), trade (10%), transport (6%), construction (4%)

OVERVIEW Description: The Merafong City Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated within the West Rand District in the Gauteng Province. It is the largest of three municipalities in the district, making up almost half of its geographical area. It is situated about 65km from Johannesburg and is serviced by a number of major roads, including the N12 from Johannesburg to Cape Town and the N14, which is the main road between Gauteng and Mahikeng (previously Mafikeng) via Ventersdorp. Its boundaries enclose some of the richest gold mines in the world. Formerly a cross-border municipality, the entire municipality was transferred to the North West Province following the abolition of cross-border municipalities by an amendment to the South African Constitution in 2005. The municipality was part of the North West Province from 2005 to 2009, when it was reincorporated into the Gauteng Province by another amendment to the Constitution, following often violent protests in the township of Khutsong. Merafong’s historical development is closely knit with the discovery of rich gold deposits in the early 1930s. Fochville is the oldest town in the region, and was declared a town in 1951. The town Carletonville was named after Guy Carleton Jones, an engineer from the Gold Fields Ltd mining company, who played a prominent role in the discovery of the West Wits gold field, of which Carletonville forms a part. The mining company decided, in November 1946, to establish the town. Carletonville was proclaimed in 1948 and attained Town Council Status on 1 July 1959. Wedela is situated between Western Deep Levels and Elandsrand mine. The town’s name is derived from the prefixes of the two mines: the ’Wed-’ from Western Deep Levels and the ’-ela’ from Elandsrand. Wedela was established as a mining village in December 1978 by Harry Oppenheimer, and municipal status was granted to the town on 1 January 1990. Area: 1 631km2 Cities/Towns: Carletonville, Fochville, Wedela Main Economic Sectors: Mining (50.7%), trade (9.7%), finance and business services (9.9%), community services (9.2%), general government (9.1%)

KwaZulu-Natal is located in the south-east of South Africa bordering the Indian Ocean. It also borders on the Eastern Cape, Free State and Mpumalanga Provinces, as well as Lesotho, Swaziland and Mozambique. The ‘Garden Province’ of South Africa stretches from the lush subtropical east coast washed by the warm Indian Ocean, to the sweeping savanna in the east and the majestic Drakensberg Mountain Range in the west. It covers an area of 94 361km2, the third-smallest in the country, and has a population of 11 065 240, making it the second most populous province in South Africa. The capital is Pietermaritzburg. The largest city is Durban. Other major cities and towns include Richards Bay, Port Shepstone, Newcastle, Estcourt, Ladysmith and Richmond. The province’s manufacturing sector is the largest in terms of contribution to GDP. Richards Bay is the centre of operations for South Africa’s aluminium industry. The Richards Bay Coal Terminal is instrumental in securing the country’s position as the second-largest exporter of steam coal in the world. The province has undergone rapid industrialisation owing to its abundant water supply and labour resources. Agriculture is also central to the economy. The sugar cane plantations along the coastal belt are the mainstay of KwaZulu-Natal’s agriculture. The coastal belt is also a large producer of subtropical fruit, while the farmers inland concentrate on vegetable, dairy and stock farming. Another source of income is forestry in the areas around Vryheid, Eshowe, Richmond, Harding and Ngome. KwaZulu-Natal is divided into one metropolitan municipality (eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality) and 10 district municipalities, which are further subdivided into 43 local municipalities.

OVERVIEW Description: The Dannhauser Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated within the Amajuba District in the KwaZulu-Natal Province. It is the smallest of the three municipalities in the district, making up a quarter of its geographical area. The municipality is named after an old farming family that lived in the area. The town of Dannhauser is located midway between Durban and Johannesburg on the main railway line, about 8km off the national

road between the two cities. It is surrounded by some of the largest coal-producing mines in KwaZulu-Natal. Numerous rivers flow through the municipal area, the most important being the Ngagane and uMzinyathi Rivers, and there are scenic landscapes in the western portion of the municipality. Dannhauser functions as a small rural service centre (providing commercial and service facilities, and agricultural industries and services). It is therefore not a large employment generator. Residents of the municipal area rely on the larger urban centres of Dundee and Newcastle for employment opportunities and higher order goods and services. Investment in commerce has growth prospects. Area: 1 707km2 Cities/Towns: Dannhauser, Hattingspruit Main Economic Sectors: Agriculture, mining (30%), manufacturing (13.8%), services

OVERVIEW Description: The Newcastle Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated within the Amajuba District. It is located in the inland region on the north-west corner of KwaZulu-Natal, a few kilometres south of the Free State, Mpumalanga and Gauteng Province borders, in the foothills of the Drakensberg. It is one of three municipalities in the district, making up a quarter of its geographical area. Newcastle is the third-largest urban centre in KwaZulu-Natal and is categorised as a secondary city. The town was strategically placed, in 1854, by the Surveyor General of the Natal Colony, Dr PC Sutherland. The town was later known as the Waterfall River Township because of the Ncandu River. In 1864, the town of Newcastle was founded on the site, becoming the fourth town to be established in Natal. The town was named after the British Colonial Secretary, the Duke of Newcastle. Newcastle functioned as a major transport junction and popular stopover for wagons and post-chaises during the late 1800s. In 1890, the first train arrived in Newcastle. In 1891, Newcastle was declared a borough. The discovery of coal brought a new era of prosperity to the town and several ambitious building projects were planned for Newcastle in the late 1900s.

This strategic location is also acknowledged in the Provincial Spatial Framework, which has identified Mandeni as the growth node in the north coast corridor. The construction of the new Dube Trade Port and King Shaka International Airport has much economic, social and employment implications for the municipality because of its location. Mandeni is the only urban settlement of substance and functions as the service centre for a substantial hinterland. Mandeni consists of fragmented pockets of intensive urban settlement separated by areas of little or no development. Four rural settlements, Hlomendlini, Macambini, Mathonsi and Ndulinde, are each under an Inkosi. All are underdeveloped and have major backlogs in service provision. The municipality has no capacity to supply the whole area with electricity. Transport infrastructure is well developed, with a high standard of road and rail services into the area. Area: 545km2 Cities/Towns: Isithebe, Mandeni Main Economic Sectors: Manufacturing (37%), finance, insurance, real estate and business services (29%), wholesale and retail trade, catering and accommodation (19%), transport (5%), agriculture (4%), general government (4%)

OVERVIEW Description: The Ndwedwe Local Municipality is a Category B municipality located within the iLembe District in the KwaZulu-Natal Province. It lies parallel to, and approximately 20km inland from, the KwaZulu-Natal coast. It is the largest of four municipalities in the district, making up a third of its geographical area. The municipality consists mainly of poor black communities whose livelihoods depend on subsistence farming. Located in relatively close proximity to major urban and economic developments, the area has remained substantially underdeveloped, disadvantaged and poor.

External access and internal linkage are substantially limited to east-west roads, while north-south links are few and of poor quality. Much of Ndwedwe Municipality’s detailed planning for the future depends on strategies yet to be developed for the iLembe District Municipality. However, the key short-term objectives that have been identified for Ndwedwe are strongly focused on the provision of basic infrastructure and services to a population that is at present severely lacking in these facilities. Area: 1 093km2 Cities/Towns: Ndwedwe Main Economic Sectors: Agriculture, tourism, services

It borders on the Indian Ocean and has a coastline of approximately 17km. It is the largest of five municipalities in the district, making up almost a third of its geographical area. The population distribution in the municipal area is characterised by relatively high population densities within urban nodes and low

densities in rural areas. The municipal area is dominated by tribal areas, and 14 tribal authorities exist within the area. The town of Eshowe is of great historical significance in that it is the birthplace of Cetshwayo, who was king of the Zulus during the AngloZulu War of 1879. Eshowe Town is also considered the administrative and service centre of the uMlalazi Municipality. The coastal town of Mtunzini is situated on the north coast of KwaZulu-Natal on the banks of the uMlalazi River, and borders on the uMlalazi Nature Reserve. Mtunzini is the number one residential and ecotourist destination in South Africa. The municipal area consists of commercial farming areas in a broad, continuous band from the west of Eshowe to KwaGingindlovu (previously Gingindlovu) and to the north of Mtunzini. The rest of the area consists of tribal authority land, where land management has been poor.

OVERVIEW

A second layer of relatively dense settlements occurs on the eastern side of the Impendle Mountain, while density decreases sharply towards the west, with a ribbon of small villages running along the Lotheni River. Area: 1 610km2 Cities/Towns: Impendle Main Economic Sectors: Agriculture, tourism, social services

Description: The Impendle Local Municipality is a Category B municipality located within the uMgungundlovu District in KwaZuluNatal. It is one of seven municipalities in the district. It is situated outside the primary and secondary movement systems of the district, and is some distance away from the major tourist and trade routes, although two important roads mark its borders. The road linking Pietermaritzburg and Underberg that serves as an important access route to the Southern Drakensberg, a popular tourist destination, runs along Impendle’s southern boundary. The link road between Mooi River and Underberg, which is an alternative tourist route, travels along the municipality’s north-western boundary. The Impendle area is extremely diverse in its topography, climate and soil, and has a rich and complex natural environment. Its location at the foot of the Drakensberg makes Impendle a highland area and an important source of water within the KwaZulu-Natal Province. It is in the catchment area of the Mkhomazi River in the south and the Mngeni River in the north-east. High-density settlements occur around Impendle Town, in villages such as Gomane, KwaNovuka, Similobha and Kamensi.

OVERVIEW Description: The Mpofana Local Municipality is a Category B municipality located approximately 40km west of Pietermaritzburg. It is bounded by three municipalities: uMngeni in the south, uMshwathi in the east, and Impendle in the west. It is one of seven municipalities in the district. The municipality benefits from its strategic position as it

has easy access to rail, KZN provincial roads and the N3 National Road. Almost 50% of the land in Mpofana has the potential for rural farming, with products set for the international market. Mooi River is a small town that germinated from a small farm and then, later, became the principal node of the Mpofana Municipality when a railway line linking Durban with Johannesburg, as well as the Drakensberg Mountains, was established in order to cater for the needs of the farmers in the area. This suggests that Mpofana has great potential for development through tourism. Area: 1 757km2 Cities/Towns: Mooi River Main Economic Sectors: Agriculture, tourism

OVERVIEW Description: The uMshwathi Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated within the uMgungundlovu District, immediately adjacent to Pietermaritzburg, in the KwaZulu-Natal Province. It is the largest municipality of seven in the district. The municipality is located in an area that was largely under the control of tribal authorities until very recently. However, in the remaining portion there are towns built by German immigrants some 150 years ago. In the 1850s, 13 cotton planter families from Osnabruck unter Bergthell left Germany and settled in the area. They were followed by missionaries and other colonists, mostly from Hanover, who also settled in the region, founded New Hanover and Wartburg, and brought with them not only the Lutheran faith but the German language and culture. Wartburg itself is named after the castle in Eisenach, where Dr Martin Luther translated the bible into German. The village crest also depicts the immigrants’ arrival by sailing ship, the Luther Rose, and the call to ’pray and work’. The land is mostly agricultural, although urban development is to be found in the main towns. The communities living in the underdeveloped areas have extremely limited access to basic physical and social requirements and very few economic opportunities. The present authority structures are, as yet, unable to provide for the improvement of basic living conditions urgently required by the rural inhabitants.

OVERVIEW Description: The Jozini Local Municipality is a Category B municipality located within the uMkhanyakude District in northern KwaZulu-Natal, and borders Swaziland and Mozambique. It is one of four municipalities in the district, making up a quarter of its geographical area. Significant portions of Jozini have been neglected in terms of economic development. There is a great disparity between the level of service and infrastructure provision between settlement nodes such as the towns of Mkuze and Jozini, and the surrounding rural areas. Most of the rural area is associated with a lack of development, poverty and poor service provision. The Lebombo Mountains and Makhatini Flats provide a diverse and beautiful terrain rich in local resources, including water features and fossil sites.

Description: The uMsinga Local Municipality is a Category B municipality in the south-western part of the uMzinyathi District in KwaZulu-Natal. It is one of four municipalities in the district, making up almost a third of its geographical area. The nature of the topography is such that uMsinga is largely located in deep gorges of the Tugela and Buffalo Rivers. This effectively isolates the area from the immediate surrounding municipal areas. uMsinga is accessible via the R33, linking it with Dundee, Ladysmith, Pietermaritzburg, Kranskop and Weenen. It is a largely rural area, with 70% of its area being traditional authority land held in trust by the Ingonyama Trust. The remaining 30% of land is commercial farmland, all of which is located to the north of Pomeroy. Due to the rural nature of the municipality, approximately 99% of the population lives in traditional areas. The population dynamics result in a growing rural area and a declining urban area in uMsinga, contrary to most other areas in the country. This can be attributed to the fact that the urban areas of uMsinga are very small and are unable to provide the normal range of goods and services provided in urban areas. As a result, the population utilises the neighbouring areas of Emnambithi and Umvoti for urban services. The strong traditional culture, particularly prevalent in uMsinga, is a valuable asset that must be preserved and valued. These traditional areas provide support mechanisms for the communities, as well as living custodians of the culture.

OVERVIEW Description: The Okhahlamba Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated in the uThukela District of KwaZulu-Natal between Lesotho, the Free State, and the Alfred Duma and Inkosi Langalibalele Local Municipalities. It is the largest of three municipalities in the district, making up just over a third of its geographical area. Okhahlamba is made up of privately owned commercial farmland; smallholder settlements; the urban areas of Bergville, Winterton, Cathkin Park and Geluksberg; and three tribal authority areas. The ideallysituated agricultural and trading centre of Bergville, less than 50km from the towering Amphitheatre of Royal Natal, was laid out by a retired sea

captain in 1897. Two years later, at the onset of the Anglo-Boer War, British forces built a blockhouse in the settlement. The building is now a monument and museum within the grounds of the Bergville Courthouse. Bergville is a small town and is known as the gateway to the Northern Drakensberg. Approximately half a million tourists are attracted to the Drakensberg annually. Bergville hosts an office of the Drakensberg Publicity Association. The area is relatively well linked through the network of existing provincial roads that run through the municipality. The municipality is largely reliant on Ladysmith for facilities such as shopping, medical services and education, among others. Large capital expenditure is needed to meet service backlogs in the area.The council manages a caravan park and holiday huts on the bank of the uThukela River. A playground and facilities for sports, including swimming, tennis, bowls, cricket, golf, rugby and badminton, are available. A modern community hall serves as a town hall.

Limpopo, South Africa’s northernmost province, borders onto Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Botswana. It also borders the Mpumalanga, Gauteng and North West Provinces. Named after the Limpopo River, which flows along its northern border, it is a region of contrasts, from true Bushveld country to majestic mountains, primeval indigenous forests, unspoiled wilderness and patchworks of farmland. In the eastern region lies the northern half of the magnificent Kruger National Park. Limpopo ranks fifth in South Africa in both surface area and population, covering an area of 125 754km2 and being home to a population of 5 799 090. The capital is Polokwane (previously Pietersburg). Other major cities and towns include Bela-Bela (Warmbad), Lephalale (Ellisras), Makhado (Louis Trichardt), Musina (Messina), Thabazimbi and Tzaneen. Mining is the primary driver of economic activity. Limpopo is rich in mineral deposits, including platinum-group metals, iron ore, chromium, high and middle-grade coking coal, diamonds, antimony, phosphate and copper, as well as mineral reserves such as gold, emeralds, scheelite, magnetite, vermiculite, silicon and mica. The province is a typical developing area, exporting primary products and importing manufactured goods and services. The climatic conditions in the province allow for double harvesting seasons, which results in it being the largest producer of various crops in the agricultural market. Sunflowers, cotton, maize and peanuts are cultivated in the Bela-Bela—Modimolle area. Bananas, litchis, pineapples, mangoes and pawpaws, as well as a variety of nuts, are grown in the Tzaneen and Makhado areas. Extensive tea and coffee plantations create many employment opportunities in the Tzaneen area. The Bushveld is cattle country, where controlled hunting is often combined with ranching. Limpopo is divided into five district municipalities, which are further subdivided into 22 local municipalities.

Description: The Polokwane Local Municipality is a Category B

Population: 797 127 No Schooling: 9.2% Households: 239 116

municipality located within the Capricorn District in the Limpopo Province. It is one of four municipalities in the district, making up just under a quarter of its geographical area. It is a city with more than a century of phenomenal growth and prosperity. Polokwane Municipality accounts for 3% of the total surface area of Limpopo, however, over 10% of the population of Limpopo resides within its boundaries. The municipality serves as the economic hub of Limpopo, and has the highest population density in the Capricorn District. It shares its name with the city of Polokwane (previously Pietersburg). In February 2002, the city was renamed Polokwane – a northern Sesotho word that means ’place of safety’. The municipal spatial pattern reflects that of the historic apartheid city model, characterised by segregated settlement. At the centre of the area is the Polokwane economic hub, which comprises the central business district, industrial area, and a range of social services and wellestablished formal urban areas servicing the more affluent residents of Polokwane. Situated on the outskirts in several clusters are less formal settlement areas, which are experiencing enormous influx from rural urban migration trends. These areas are in dire need of upgraded services and infrastructure, both social and engineering, and are struggling to cope with the informal influx of more and more people who want access to an improved quality and standard of living.

He played an active role in the establishment of the South African Congress of trade unions. A lifelong member of the ANC, and the SACP, he also played a central role in many campaigns, including the Defiance Campaign of 1952, the year in which he was banned. He was detained in terms of the 1960 State of Emergency and imprisoned for four months. On his release, he went underground and served on the Johannesburg Regional Umkhonto we Sizwe. Arrested in 1963, Motsoaledi was one of the Revonia Trialists and was sentenced to life imprisonment on Robben Island, a sentence he served until his release in 1989 – 26 years later. On his release, he was elected to National Executive Committee of the ANC.

OVERVIEW Description: The Ephraim Mogale Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated within the Sekhukhune District in the Limpopo Province. It is the smallest of the four municipalities in the district. It was established after the 2000 local election, with the amalgamation of Marble Hall, part of Moutse (West) Transitional Local Council (TLC), Leeuwfontein, a portion of Hlogotlou/Lepelle Transitional Rural Council (TRC), Greater Nebo North TRC, a portion of Naboomspruit/Roedtan Thusang TLC, and Springbokvlakte TLC. The municipality was a cross-border between the Limpopo and Mpumalanga Provinces. After the 2006 municipal elections the municipality was incorporated into the Limpopo Province. The municipality is at the border of the two above-mentioned provinces. It is about 160km from Pretoria and about 190km from Polokwane (previously Pietersburg).

The amalgamation of parts of eight former TLCs also resulted in the establishment of the Ephraim Mogale Local Municipality, with 14 wards, which was increased to 16 wards during the 2011 local government elections. It has one town and two R293 towns, and 75 villages. The municipality was providing water to Marble Hall, Leeuwfontein and Zamenkomst, which was later transferred to the Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM). Currently, the municipality is licensed to provide electricity to Marble Hall town, and other areas are provided for by Eskom. The municipality also provides solid waste to Marble Hall, Leeuwfontein and Elandskraal, while the SDM provides water and sanitation to all other areas. The municipality is battling with a huge backlog in terms of water provision, sanitation and road construction. The average annual rainfall is about 634mm. Marble Hall boasts a pleasant climate, with an average maximum winter temperature of 23˚C and an average maximum summer temperature of 29˚C. Area: 2 011km2 Cities/Towns: Marble Hall, Schuinsdraai Nature Reserve Main Economic Sectors: Agriculture, mining, tourism, construction, trade, transport, finance

Description: The Lephalale Local Municipality is a Category B municipality located in the north-western part of the Waterberg District in the Limpopo Province. It borders with four local municipalities: Blouberg, Modimolle-Mookgophong, Mogalakwena and Thabazimbi. Its north-western border is also part of the international border between South Africa and Botswana. It is the largest of five municipalities in the district, making up a third of its geographical area. The town of Lephalale (previously Ellisras) is located a mere 280km from Pretoria, and is a recognised gateway to Botswana and other Southern African countries. Lephalale Municipality is named after the local river, a tributary of the Limpopo River, which has been the source of life to the people of this area from time immemorial. Before the new dispensation, this municipality was called Ellisras; derived from the combination of surnames of two Afrikaners, Patric Ellis and Piet Erasmus, who settled in this area in the 1930s. Nestled at the spur of the Waterberg Mountains, Lephalale is a place of peace and breathtaking beauty. Highlights like the awe-inspiring D’Nyala Nature Reserve, Marakele National Park, and the spectacular Mokolo Dam and Nature Reserve underscore why Lephalale is called the ’heartbeat of the Waterberg Bushveld’. As part of the Waterberg biosphere, the Lephalale area is richly blessed with pristine natural beauty and an abundance of fauna and flora. Lephalale offers an infinite variety of scenic contrasts and encompasses the unique Waterberg wilderness, which boasts superb vistas, mountain gorges, clear streams and rolling hills. Geological sites and rock art are a strong drawcard for the region, suggesting its links to many previous generations. Lephalale has been identified by the Limpopo Employment Growth and Development Plan as a petrochemical cluster, and has attained the status of national development node. The Waterberg coal fields, which boast more than 40% of the total coal reserves of South Africa, are located in Lephalale.

Mpumalanga, the second-smallest province in South Africa after Gauteng, is located in the north-eastern part of the country, bordering Swaziland and Mozambique to the east. It also borders Limpopo, Gauteng, Free State and KwaZulu-Natal within South Africa. It covers an area of 76 495km2 and has a population of 4 335 964, making it the sixth most populous in the country. It is situated mainly on the high plateau grasslands of the Middleveld, which roll eastwards for hundreds of kilometres. In the north-east, it rises towards mountain peaks and terminates in an immense escarpment. In some places, this escarpment plunges hundreds of metres down to the low-lying area known as the Lowveld. Mbombela (previously Nelspruit) is the capital of the province and the administrative and business centre of the Lowveld. Other major cities and towns include eMalahleni (Witbank), Standerton, eMkhondo (Piet Retief), Malalane, Ermelo, Barberton and Sabie. The best-performing sectors in the province include mining, manufacturing and services. Tourism and agro-processing are potential growth sectors. Agriculture in Mpumalanga is characterised by a combination of commercialised farming, subsistence and livestock farming, and emerging crop farming. Crops such as subtropical fruits, nuts, citrus, cotton, tobacco, wheat, vegetables, potatoes, sunflowers and maize are produced in the region. Mpumalanga is rich in coal reserves and home to South Africa’s major coal-fired power stations. eMalahleni is the biggest coal producer in Africa and is also the site of the country’s second oil-from-coal plant after Sasolburg. Most of the manufacturing production in Mpumalanga occurs in the southern Highveld region. In the Lowveld sub-region, industries are concentrated around the manufacturing of products from agricultural and raw forestry material. Mpumalanga is divided into three district municipalities, which are further subdivided into 17 local municipalities.

OVERVIEW Description: The Ehlanzeni District Municipality is a Category C municipality situated in the north-east of the Mpumalanga Province. It makes up just over a third of the province’s geographical area. The district is comprised of four local municipalities: Bushbuckridge, City of Mbombela, Nkomazi and Thaba Chweu. Mbombela (previously Nelspruit) is the capital of Mpumalanga, situated in the City of Mbombela Local Municipality, which is also the home of the Mpumalanga Provincial Government and, as a result, is the most concentrated economic hub within the province. It features three border gates to both Swaziland and Mozambique (Matsamo, Komatipoort and Mananga border gates) and, therefore, movement of people from neighbouring countries to the district, and from Gauteng to either Swaziland or Mozambique, creates a catalyst for the economic life of the area. Area: 27 896km2 Main Economic Sectors: Community services (44.5%), trade (44%), financial and real estate (43.1%), construction (41%), transport (37.5%), agriculture (35.5%), manufacturing (19.6%), mining (6%), utilities (2.8%), electricity (2%)

OVERVIEW Description: The City of Mbombela Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated in the Mpumalanga Province and forms part of the Ehlanzeni District. It is one of the four municipalities in the district, making up almost a third of its geographical area. It was established by the amalgamation of the Mbombela and Umjindi Local Municipalities in August 2016. Mbombela (previously Nelspruit) is the capital of the province. Mbombela is the Siswati word for ’a lot of people together in a small space’. The city serves as a gateway to some of the best eco- and adventure activities in Southern Africa and, with its moderate climate, becomes the preferred tourist destination all year round. Its subtropical fruits (like mangoes, avocados, oranges, lemons, litchis and bananas) are a huge drawcard for visitors, and during springtime the blossoms of orange trees can be smelt kilometres away. For shopping enthusiasts, the city offers world-class shopping malls, casinos and entertainment venues with air-conditioning systems. This creates excellent opportunities for prospective investors and businesses to establish themselves in the area.

It came into being after the December 5th 2000 local government elections. The escarpment divides the district into eastern and western halves. The western half (Lydenburg district) is dominated by agricultural and farming activities, while forestry is the main economic activity of the eastern half (Sabie/Graskop district). Thaba Chweu is one of the major tourist attraction areas in South Africa. Mashishing (previously Lydenburg) is the oldest town in the province, and a hub of heritage where the famous Lydenburg Heads, which are said to date back to 400AD, were found in the 1950s. Also found here are old stone houses. Most of all, this is the home of trout fishing. Graskop is home to the Three Rondavels, The Blyde Canyon, Potholes, God’s Window, The Pinnacle, Berlin, Lisbon, and Graskop Falls, all of which are World Heritage Sites, and form the Panorama Route. In the Sabie area, when travelling east of Mashishing through the Long Tom Pass, there are hectares of pine plantations. These mountains are part of the Drakensberg Mountain Range.

DEMOGRAPHIC INFORMATION

B municipality situated within the Gert Sibande District in the Mpumalanga Province. It is a gateway to the province from KwaZuluNatal and Swaziland. It is ideally situated halfway between the Gauteng metropolis (Johannesburg and Pretoria) and the Natal coast (Richards Bay and Durban). It is one of the seven municipalities in the district. The municipality amalgamated two former Transitional Local Councils and two Transitional Rural Councils – the historic towns of Piet Retief and Amsterdam. It is the main link for both industrial and commercial transport from Gauteng to the import/export harbour at Richards Bay. Piet Retief, now known as eMkhondo, is surrounded by forestry and plantations. Much of its economy originates from these sources. Three major sawmills, Mondi, Tafibra and PG Bison, are located just outside of eMkhondo. These play a crucial role in boosting a welldiversified economy, and the other components of manufacturing, personal services, real estate and tourism. Amsterdam/KwaThandeka and its rural nodes in the Mkhondo municipal area are fundamentally agricultural and have forestry support. Mondi, Sappi, TWK and Komati Land Forests are the major companies that lead the forestry industry in the area. Several scattered pockets of mining are found in the municipal area of jurisdiction. Natural conservation and tourist activities also contribute towards the socio-economic conditions of the municipality. A number of South African Heritage Sites are found within the municipality. These include the Entombe Battlefield, Rooikraal, Confidence, Kalkoenvlakte and

OVERVIEW Description: The Emalahleni Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated in the Mpumalanga Province within the Nkangala District. It forms part of the western regions of the province and borders onto the Gauteng Province. Thembisile Hani and Victor Khanye, and City of Tshwane Metro in Gauteng, border the municipality to the north and west. The Gert Sibande District borders it to the south and Steve Tshwete is located to the east. It is one of six municipalities in the district. The Emalahleni Municipality is strategically located in terms of the provincial context and transport network. It is situated in close proximity to the City of Ekurhuleni, City of Johannesburg and City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipalities in Gauteng, and is connected to these areas by the N4 and N12 freeways. These freeways converge at eMalahleni (previously Witbank) in Emalahleni, from where the N4 extends to Mbombela (previously Nelspruit), the provincial capital, and ultimately Maputo in Mozambique. The N4 freeway, along with the railway line that runs adjacent to the freeway from Gauteng to Mozambique, constitute the Maputo Corridor. The southern areas of the Emalahleni Municipality form part of the region referred to as the Energy Mecca of South Africa, due to its rich deposits of coal reserves and power stations. eMalahleni and Middelburg (situated in the adjacent Steve Tshwete Municipality) are the highest order settlements in the Nkangala District. These towns offer the full spectrum of business and social activities, and both towns have large industrial areas. The towns fulfil the function of service centres to the smaller towns and settlements, as well as farms in the district.

North West lies in the north of South Africa on the Botswana border, fringed by the Kalahari Desert in the west, Gauteng Province to the east and the Free State to the south. It covers an area of 104 882km2 and has a population of 3 748 436. Much of the province consists of flat areas of scattered trees and grassland. The Vaal River flows along the southern border of the province. Mahikeng (previously Mafikeng) is the capital. The city lies near the Botswana border and forms a single urban area with its neighbouring town, Mmabatho. Potchefstroom and Klerksdorp are the biggest cities in the province. Other main towns are Brits, Rustenburg, Klerksdorp and Lichtenburg. Most economic activity is concentrated in the southern region between Potchefstroom and Klerksdorp, as well as Rustenburg and the eastern region. Mining is the major contributor to the North West economy and represents almost a quarter of South Africa’s mining industry as a whole. The Rustenburg and Brits districts produce more platinum than any other single area in the world. North West also produces a quarter of South Africa’s gold, as well as granite, marble, fluorspar and diamonds. North West has a number of major tourist attractions, including the internationally famous Sun City, the Pilanesberg National Park, the Madikwe Game Reserve and the Rustenburg Nature Reserve. North West is well known for cattle farming, while the areas around Rustenburg and Brits are fertile, mixed-crop farming land. Maize and sunflowers are the most important crops, and the province is the major producer of white maize in the country. North West is divided into four district municipalities, which are further subdivided into 18 local municipalities.

OVERVIEW Description: The JB Marks Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated within the Dr Kenneth Kaunda District in the North West Province. It is the largest municipality of three in the district, making up almost half its geographical area. It was established by the amalgamation of the Ventersdorp and Tlokwe City Council Local Municipalities in August 2016. The N12 route that connects Johannesburg and Cape Town via the city of Kimberley runs through the municipality. The main railway route from Gauteng to the Northern and Western Cape also runs through one of the municipality’s main cities, Potchefstroom. The City is 145km south-east of OR Tambo International Airport but has its own airfield, which can accommodate bigger aircraft and was formerly a military air base. Gold mining is the dominant economic activity in the district, with Potchefstroom and Ventersdorp being the only exceptions. While Ventersdorp to the north-west of Potchefstroom focuses on agricultural activity, Potchefstroom’s economic activity is driven by services and manufacturing. A big role-player in the provision of services in Potchefstroom is the world-class North-West University, which has its main campus in Potchefstroom. Potchefstroom’s industrial zone has many companies, focusing mainly on the industries of steel, food and chemicals, with big entities such as King Korn, Kynoch, Naschem and the Soya Protein Process (SPP) company. Within the city centre, the infrastructure of Potchefstroom supports roughly 600 businesses. Area: 6 398km2

OVERVIEW Description: The Greater Taung Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated within the Dr Ruth Segomotsi Mompati District in the North West Province. It is one of the five municipalities that make up the district. The municipal area is predominantly rural and contains 106 widely scattered villages. Greater Taung has a rich heritage that visitors can explore. The area also has strong agricultural significance in the South African economy. The Taung Skull Heritage Route is a fascinating journey of discovery. The route follows an area in which early man once lived, and it has many

sites that show us the existence and evolution of our ancient ancestors. Spanning more than 45km, the route includes several natural wonders, such as Thomeng (an unusual limestone waterfall) and Blue Pools (a collection of rock pools, streams and caves in a valley). It was at the limestone diggings on this route, at the old Buxton quarry, that the lime-encrusted skull of a child was found in 1924. The site is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a monument has been put in place to mark the discovery.

OVERVIEW Description: The Tswaing Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated in the Ngaka Modiri Molema District in the North West Province. It is one of the five local municipalities in this district, making up almost a quarter of its geographical area. Tswaing Local Municipality provides all the basic services in its area of jurisdiction except water and sanitation, which are provided by the Ngaka Modiri Molema District Municipality. The data from Global Insight Regional Explorer 593 indicates that there has been tremendous improvement in the allocation of services to the communities in the Tswaing Local Municipality, especially housing, water, electricity and sanitation. Despite these positive results, the municipality still faces challenges with regards to backlogs in the provision of water, electricity, sanitation, roads and street lighting. The main reason for this is the increase in population in the past 10 years, partly due to evictions of people in the surrounding farms and partly because of the natural growth of the population.

The vast and arid Northern Cape is the largest province in South Africa, taking up nearly a third of the country’s land area. It covers an area of 372 889km2 and has a population of 1 193 780 the least populous of South Africa’s provinces. It is bordered by Namibia and Botswana to the north, and also by the North West, Free State, Eastern Cape and Western Cape Provinces. The cold Atlantic Ocean forms the province’s western boundary. The capital city is Kimberley. Other important towns are Upington, centre of the karakul sheep and dried-fruit industries, and the most northerly winemaking region of South Africa; Springbok, which is in the heart of the Namaqualand spring-flower country; and Kuruman and De Aar, the location of the second most important junction of South Africa’s railway network. Sutherland is host to the southern hemisphere’s largest astronomical observatory, the multinational sponsored Southern African Large Telescope. The Northern Cape is rich in minerals. Alluvial diamonds are extracted from the beaches and the sea between Alexander Bay and Port Nolloth. The Sishen Mine near Kathu is the biggest source of iron ore in South Africa, while the copper mine at Okiep is one of the oldest mines in the country. Copper is also mined at Springbok and Aggeneys. The province is rich in asbestos, manganese, fluorspar, semi-precious stones and marble. The province has fertile agricultural land in the Orange River Valley, especially at Upington, Kakamas and Keimoes, where grapes and fruit are intensively cultivated. The interior Karoo relies on sheep farming, while the karakul-pelt industry is one of the most important in the Gordonia district of Upington. Wheat, fruit, peanuts, maize and cotton are produced at the Vaalharts Irrigation Scheme near Warrenton. The Northern Cape is divided into five district municipalities, which are further subdivided into 26 local municipalities.

FINANCIAL INFORMATION

OVERVIEW Description: The Kamiesberg Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated within the Namakwa District in the Northern Cape Province. It is one of the smaller municipalities of the six that make up the district. It was established in 2001 in accordance with the demarcation process. The municipality spans three topographic zones: from the sandy coastal lowlands (Sandveld) to the mountainous central Kamiesberg escarpment (Hardveld), and to the eastern plateau of Bushmanland. There are no perennial rivers in the area. Water is obtained from subterranean sources. Some of the water is pumped up by windmills, but most of the water to the communal areas comes from natural springs. Many of these springs are semi-perennial and the salt content of the water can vary from year to year, causing problems. Four main types of vegetation are found in the area: Mountain Renosterveld, Succulent Karoo, False Succulent Karoo and Namaqualand Broken Veld. However, overall plant life is in a deteriorating state and non-edible, undesirable and poisonous vegetation is taking over.
