    Description: Mahikeng Local Municipality (previously Mafikeng Local Municipality) is located in Mahikeng (previously Mafikeng), the capital city of the North West province, and is the seat of the Provincial Legislature and the majority of the National State Departments regional offices.
     Mahikeng Local Municipality was brought about by the new Local Government transformation in South Africa. It is a Category B municipality established in terms of section 12 of the Municipal Structures Act (MSA). Nestled next to the Botswana border, Mahikeng is just a three-hour drive from Johannesburg and about 294km from Pretoria.
     Its rich and diverse history dates back to 1852, when the town was founded, and 1899 to 1902 during the Anglo-Boer War, the Mafikeng Siege. Its town is home to the Mahikeng Museum, with its antique steel ceiling, old town clock, Sol Plaatje’s history, and display of rock species.
     The municipality is considerably bigger than the other four local municipalities located within the area of jurisdiction of the Ngaka Modiri Molema District Municipality. The neighbouring local municipalities that border the Mahikeng Local Municipality are: Ramotsere Moiloa Local Municipality (previously Zeerust Local Municipality), Tswaing Local Municipality, Ditsobotla Local Municipality and Ratlou Local Municipality (previously Setla-Kgobi Local Municipality). The Mahikeng Airport, situated 5km west of the Mmabatho CBD, boasts a landing strip of 4.6km, one of the longest runways in the world.
