Who We Are

The Bakgatla-Ba-Kgafela (BBK) tribe resides in the North West province in a region rich in natural beauty and mineral resources. The exploitation of these resources has resulted in the development of vibrant tourism, agricultural and mining industries.

Kgosi Nyalala Pilane, who has been leading the 350 000 BBK community since April 1996, manages the communities’ administrative and economic affairs through the Bakgatla-Ba-Kgafela Tradition Administration (BBKTA), which operates from the administrative buildings in Moruleng. The BBKTA is an enthusiastic supporter of projects aimed at the empowerment of women, youth and people living with disabilities. Education, healthcare, infrastructure, job creation and poverty alleviation have been identified as major priorities for the region.

“We are committed to development in the region which will be catalysed through reinvestment of the area’s mineral wealth and sustained through the advancement of agriculture, tourism and mining. Dividends from our investments are ploughed back into community-based projects that generate more opportunities for people on the ground,” says Kgosi Pilane.
