    Geography, History and Economy

    Area: 1 717km²
    Description: Metsimaholo Local Municipality is an administrative area in the Fezile Dabi District of the Free State province. Metsimaholo means ‘big water' in Sesotho. 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.
    Cities/Towns: Deneysville, Kragbron, Oranjeville, Sasolburg
    Main Economic Sectors: Manufacturing, retail, community services
