ATOK – Fetakgomo Greater Tubatse Local Municipality is a name of the past following the official renaming of the local municipality to Fetakgomo Tubatse on Saturday 09 December 2017.


The unveiling of the new name and logo for LIM476, a new local municipality formed following the 2016 local government elections after the amalgamation of Fetakgomo and Greater Tubatse local municipalities, took place at the Thusong Service Centre grounds in Atok.

Johannes Phokane, former Fetakgomo and Greater Tubatse local municipality mayor, is mayor for the newly named local municipality.

During the unveiling of the new name and logo, Phokane said it was a great honour for him to be the first mayor of Fetakgomo Tubatse Local Municipality and affirmed his commitment to uphold the constitutional duty to lead the municipality.

Phokane said the local municipality’s slogan ‘Setšhaba se tla buna’ had a deeper meaning to him to ensure the community greatly benefited from every cent spent from the municipality’s resources.

Acting Executive Mayor on the day, Alfred Matlala, who took part in the unveiling of the local municipality’s new logo and name on the giant banner, expressed his gratitude and praised the mayor of the new local municipality for displaying leadership, patience and caution in executing such a delicate exercise.

“This is a name so fresh, unique and identical to residents of the new local municipality,” concluded Matlala.
