Abstract

At the intersection of the N1, the Great North Road to Zimbabwe, and the N11 the Gateway to Botswana, rests Potgietersrus. Locals often speak of Pprus (Pieter Potgietersrus) or Potties (from Potgieter) when they talk about this town in the Northern Province of South Africa. Potgietersrus used to be the center of the former Greater Potgietersrus Transitional Local Council. Currently, the former Potgietersrus council forms together with the former Rural Local Councils Bakenberg and Koedoesrand-Rebone the new Mogalakwena Local Municipality. Mogalakwena is one of 5 local municipalities in the Waterberg District Municipality, which was established after the local elections in December 2000.
