Welcome to West Rand District Municipality
The West Rand District Municipality (WRDM) comprises of three local municipalities, namely Mogale City, Merafong City and Randfontein. The District Management Area (DMA) also falls under the jurisdiction of the WRDM.
Mogale City inherited it’s name from Chief Mogale wa Mogale, the last pre-colonial leader to rule over the region from Hartbeespoort in the North West up to Magaliesburg.
Merafong’s historical development is closely knit with the discovery of rich gold reefs in the early nineteen thirties.
Rand West City Local Municipality was established by the amalgamation of Randfontein Local Municipality and Westonaria Local Municipality on 3 August 2016.
