New housing development in Sebokeng

Sebokeng is a township in southern Gauteng, South Africa near the industrial city of Vanderbijlpark (in the district municipality of Sedibeng and the local municipality of Emfuleni).

 

It was established by the then apartheid government in 1965 when 18,772 houses were erected.

In September 1984 there were violent clashes between the South African security forces and the residents of Sebokeng, who were boycotting rent and service tariffs. The cessation of fighting in 1994 allowed citizens to begin forming a stable community.

No apartheid warThe township is divided into a number of zones ranging from Zone 1 to Zone 21. After South Africa’s democratic elections in 1994, the number of middle-class black South Africans or ‘black diamonds’ in this township has risen dramatically, with Zones such as Zone 6, 10 and 14 consisting of the largest number of black middle-class citizens and homes with a higher property value than traditional Apartheid ‘matchbox houses’ (four-roomed houses erected during the township’s establishment).
