It is official. The struggling local municipalities of the Bronberg, Cullinan, Rayton and Bronkhorstspruit areas are going to disappear after the 2011 local government elections.

On 24 July the Municipal Demarcation Board took the final decision that Metsweding district municipality, which includes Kungwini and Nokeng tsa Taemane local municipalities, will become part of the Tshwane and Ekurhuleni Metro Councils. In June, The Bronberger reported that the Municipal Demarcation Board confirmed that it will recommend the dissolution of these struggling local councils at the Gauteng Provincial Government.

The publication of the legal notices is taking place now and must be finalised before the end of August when the board must hand over the municipal boundaries to the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC), which must start preparing for the 2009 national and provincial elections, as well as the 2011 local government elections.

If the legal notices are not published by the end of August, the affected re-determinations will not be included in the final municipal boundary maps for the 2009 and 2011 elections, which must be handed to the IEC in August. Once the boundaries have been handed over to the IEC, no municipal boundaries will be re-determined until after the 2011 local government elections.
