    Description: The Inxuba Yethemba Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated in the Chris Hani District in the Eastern Cape Province. It is approximately 240km north of Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Municipality. It is one of six municipalities in the district, making up a third of its geographical area.
