    Description: Makhado Local Municipality is one of four local municipalities in the Vhembe District. It borders with Musina in the north, Thulamela in the east, Molemole in the west (Capricorn District) and Greater Giyani in the south (Mopani District).
     It was first established on 31 October 1934 as the Louis Trichardt Town Council. With the new municipal demarcation, a number of municipalities were established in 1997. However, following the Municipal Structures Act of 1998, the municipalities were merged into an NP344 Municipality that is now known as the Makhado Municipality. It is divided into four regions: Makhado (previously Louis Trichardt), Vuwani, Dzanani and Waterval.
