Tlokwe City Council

Tlokwe Local Municipality (previously known asPotchefstroom Local Municipality) falls within Dr Kenneth Kaunda District Municipality in the North West province. The seat of the local municipality is Potchefstroom. The most widely accepted theory on the origin of the name Potchefstroom is that the name is composed of three words: Potgieter, chef and stroom. The first syllable is that of Potgieter, the second from the fact that he was a "chef" or a leader of the emigrants, and the third signifying the Mooi River. The complete name "Potgieter" was gradually shortened to "Pot". (http://www.potch.co.za/index.htm).read more »
