Geography, History & Economy

Vulamehlo Local Municipality is part of Ugu District Municipality.

MDB code: KZN211

Description: Vulamehlo Local Municipality forms part of the Ugu District Municipality. It is located south of the eThekwini Municipality and is bordered by Umdoni to the east, Mkhambathini and Richmond to the north, and Ubuhlebezwe to the west. The municipal area is predominantly tribal, with common tribal land patterns. There are, however, also a few scattered pockets of privately owned land throughout the municipal area.
 The dispersed, low-density settlement pattern makes the provision of physical and social infrastructure (roads, water, electricity, clinics, schools, and police stations) and the costs of installing, maintaining and operating the infrastructure very high. The Vulamehlo Municipality is one of the localities within the Ugu District that is hardest hit by high unemployment levels, poverty and negative economic growth rate.

Area: 960km²
