    Geography, History and Economy

    Area: 966km²
    Description: Emfuleni Local Municipality (previously known as Lekoa Local Municipality) is one of three local municipalities comprising the Sedibeng District Municipality situated in Vanderbijlpark, Gauteng. It is the westernmost local municipality of the district, which covers the entire southern area of the Gauteng province, extending along a 120km axis from east to west. The Vaal River forms the southern boundary, and its strategic location affords it many opportunities for tourism and other forms of economic development. Emfuleni shares boundaries with Metsimaholo Local Municipality in the Free State to the south, Midvaal Local Municipality to the east, the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan area to the north, and Westonaria and Potchefstroom (in North West province) Local Municipalities to the west. The municipality is strategically located, with access to a well-maintained road network – the N1 linking Johannesburg and Bloemfontein, and traversing Emfuleni. Sasolburg forms the heartland of what was formerly known as the Vaal Triangle, renowned for its contribution to the iron and steel industry in South Africa. The Emfuleni Local Municipality is rich in history as it encapsulates the Anglo-Boer War, with heritage assets such as the Sharpeville monument and the liberation struggle epitomised by the signing of the Constitution in 1996 in Sharpeville.
