Mabopane was proclaimed in 1959 as a black-only residential settlement by the then Transvaal administration. Before its proclamation the area was under the administration of Transvaal government little more than grazing lands with small communities in Boukenhoutfontein (which later became Block A), Winterveldt and Hebron. The initial residents of Boukenhoutfontein were victims of forced removals from Wallmansthal, Lady Selborne, Boukenhoutkloof and other farm areas around Pretoria. Other residents of Mabopane were Mapulana people who were evicted from the farms near Primier Mine and settled in a non developed area commonly called Mapulaneng, which is between Block A, Lebanon and Block U. With the financing coming from the South African government the first block houses were constructed similar to those found in Soweto, beginning with Block A which had two roomed houses, Block B, Block C, Block D and Block E. The areas within Mabopane were planned according to the class of its citizens; for example Block D (with many mansions which housed the politically connected) in comparison to Block E (block–houses). Mabopane was incoparated of the bantustan of Bophuthatswana from 1977 to 1994. Parts of Mabopane, Blocks F, G and H became Soshanguve to house the Non-Tswana residents of Mabopane during the Bantustan rule.

In the Apartheid days Mabopane was an active base for P.A.C. and A.N.C. members who mobilized workers against the government and playing the South African government against the Bophuthatswana Administration. The times were tough particularly in the mid 1980s as the local authority was holding on to power. Mabopane Square used to be the gathering ground for activists and communists protesting against the government. School riots were plentiful in the 1976 Student Uprising. Several township administration halls were burnt and the bus depot was vandalized. With democracy on its way in the early 1990s the face of Mabopane started to change. The old authorities were replaced with new leaders in what was then the Town of Mabopane. Hon. Lehobye was the first mayor along with Hon. Molema deputy mayor who were elected to administer the town.

Many institutions were built under President Mangope of Bophutatswana like ODI Manpower Centre, ODi hospital, homes, police stations, government departments, schools and prisons at such a rate that is to this day unattainable by the present government. Mangope provided good education and security for the citizens of Mabopane. At the same time those residents who were not Tswanas were persecuted and many moved to Soshanguve by coercion or free will. During the late 1990s Mabopane's growth slumped in line with the national recession which had negative consequences for the citizens of Mabopane. In the advent of the new millennium Mabopane has seen
new growth and repairs and maintenance of its infrastructure.





Almost all of Mabopane's residents are of black race, with a few Somali traders and shopkeepers. The age groups in the township is generally in line with the country's age groups, with teenagers as the largest age group.

The majority of residents are of the Christian faith with different nominally sects like Zcc, Lutheran, Twelve apostle and John Wesley. Non-Christian faiths in the minority include Islam and Atheism. Mabopane like most townships in South Africa has a wide range of income groups, the poorest earn between US$100-$US300 of which comes mostly from State social grants, the second group middle class earnings is generally between US$400-US$1400. There is a definite class distinction within this group. The upper class in the township as the minority enjoys low property value taxes and rates they income bracket does exceed US$5000 along with large equity in assets. The upper class is comparable to the middle class in any developed country.

Most residents in the township rely on public transport to commute and this is through rail (Mabopane Station), bus and taxi. The trains usually take working residents to the main industrial area's in Pretoria, whilst the taxi is used for local travel (within Mabopane, Soshanguve, Ga-Rankuwa and Hebron), it costs about US$0.70 for a trip that can span 8 miles. Transport to the main city is through the larger taxis which carry 14-22 passengers. The taxis are available from 05:00-19:00 and will cost US$2 to commute about 26.66 miles to town. Most taxis are efficient, clean and the drivers will show courtesy to their passengers. About 20% of citizens own cars.

The languages in Mabopane mostly are from the Bantu origins. Tswana, Sotho, Sepedi, Ndebele, Tsonga, Zulu and English are the languages spoken in Mabopane. The overwhelming majority of residents understand and speak Tswana.

Health care


Mabopane’s healthcare is one of the more advanced in the northern townships. It includes a private hospital Legae (owned by Medi-Clinic), Odi Public Hospital (administed by the provincial government) with its hinterland coming in from as far as Botswana. There are several clinics in the community in Block A (colloquially known as Boekenhout), Block B, and another clinic also in Block B which is under construction.

There are several doctors and specialists in Mabopane who have access to the latest technology and innovations. These doctors are mostly in Lucas Mangope street. There are non-franchised pharmacies in Mabopane in Terminus and Block C.

There is a small home for those infected with HIV/AIDS in Block X. Currently there are no mental institutions in Mabopane.
