         1.1 KWADUKUZA LOCAL MUNICIPALITY




          KwaDukuza Municipal area of jurisdiction is estimated at
          734.971km². The municipal area stretches from the Zinkwazi
          River in the north to the Uthongathi River in the south. It borders
          with four Municipalities viz; Ndwedwe, Maphumulo and
          Mandeni local municipalities, and the eThekwini Metropolitan
          Municipality. KwaDukuza functions as a district node and
          is the dominant commercial centre in the iLembe District.
          KwaDukuza derives its name from the historical background of
          the area being home to King Shaka’s gravesite and memorial.
          The town is built on the original site of King Shaka‘s royal
          settlement called Dukuza. The settlement patterns show
          that urban development is primarily located in the formally
          established towns of KwaDukuza, Shakaskraal, Ballito, Umhlali,
          Blythedale Beach, Tinley Manor, Zinkwazi and portions of
          Groutville. Peri-urban to semi-rural settlements occur throughout
          much of the centre of the municipality, and these extend
          from the northern boundary via KwaDukuza, Groutville
          and uMhlali to the southern edge bordering eThekwini.
          The vision of KwaDukuza is stated: “By 2030, KwaDukuza shall be
          a vibrant city competing in the global village economically,
          socially, politically and in a sustainable manner.’’
