Welcome to Mantsopa Local Municipality

Mantsopa was the sister of King Moshoeshoe. She was banished from the kingdom by King Moshoeshoe when he suspected that her powers were greater than his. When she arrived at Modderpoort, there were no houses and she stayed in a cave. She was a great prophetess and everything she predicted happened.  In 1886, a group of men called “The Brotherhood of St Augustine” arrived at Modderpoort on their way to Durban.  Mantsopa accommodated them in her cave. She later left them in this cave and settled at Spitskop Mountain and built a small house for herself.  This cave was later know as “Lehaha la Mantsopa”.Read more...
