    Geography, History and Economy

    Area: 1 717km²
    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.

    Cities/Towns: Deneysville, Kragbron, Oranjeville, Sasolburg
