Rustenburg Local Municipality (RLM) is one of the five municipalities within the Bojanala District
Municipality in the North West Province and is divided into 36 wards. It has a total population of 449,775
people comprising of 54.1% males and 45.9% females (source: Statssa community survey 2007). The
municipality is reputed to be one of South Africa’s fastest growing urban areas with an annual compound
economic growth rate of 6% between 1996 and 2002. This significant growth is largely attributed to the
impact of the world’s four largest mines in the immediate vicinity of the town, namely, Anglo Platinum,
Impala Platinum, Xstrata and Lonmin. With approximately 97% of the total platinum production occurring
in Rustenburg, the mining sector provides around 50% of all formal employment.
