Privately owned land

Lephalale (Limpopo province) under Lephalale Municipality at a place called Marapong , land is scarce as most of the land is privately owned by Exxaro ,Eskom and those who where privileged, Lephalale Municipality doesn’t have any  land to offer communities .

Communities are forced to live under Power lines as rent is very expensive and the last time RDP’s where built around Marapong it was in 2006 . That’s why Marapong is dominated by Informal Settlements. That land was claimed by African people until now they’re still waiting for claims to be approved.
