About Lufhereng

The City of Johannesburg together with the Gauteng Department of Human Settlements jointly announced the launch of the Lufhereng integrated urban development project, a project to break new ground and aimed at promoting home ownership and eradicating service delivery backlogs within the Gauteng Province.

Location: The Lufhereng integrated urban development project is located directly to the west of Soweto, to the north of Protea Glen and to the south of Slovoville, forming a natural western extension of Soweto. The development was planned to physically, economically and socially integrate with Soweto.

"Lufhereng" was derived from a Tshi'Venda word and Sotho words, 'Lufhera' and 'reng' respectively, were combined to a name that refers to a place where people come together with a united commitment.
