Sedibeng District Municipality compromises of Emfuleni, Lesedi and Midvaal Local Municipalities. It is situated on the southern tip of Gauteng province and strategically located on the border of three other provinces: Free State, North West and Mpumalanga. The well-developed national road network that cuts across the district to all the provinces ensures that the region remains the industrial centre of Gauteng province. The municipality is 50km from Johannesburg and 81km from Pretoria, without the high traffic volumes. Sedibeng 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. The Sedibeng District Municipality is a Category C municipality. It is the only area of the Gauteng province that is situated on the banks of the Vaal River and Vaal Dam in the southern-most part of the province, covering the area formerly known as the Vaal Triangle. It includes the towns of Vereeniging, Vanderbijlpark, Meyerton and Heidelberg, as well as the historic townships of Evaton, Sebokeng, Boipatong, Bophelong, Sharpeville and Ratanda, which have a rich political history and heritage. It is situated along the scenic Vaal, Klip, and Suikerbos Rivers. Sedibeng has a variety of attractions offering a vast cultural heritage and many historical experiences 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.
