Press Release - KURUMAN 16 May 2022

ONE SMALL TOWN – South Africa

I am pleased to announce that the first South African town to embrace the ONE SMALL TOWN model is KURUMAN, in the Northern Cape.

This includes the whole John Taolo Gaetsewe District Municipality under the leadership of Executive Mayor Queen Mogatle. Approximate population of 285,000 and land size of 27,283 km².

This is an historic moment for all South Africans and people all around the world who are looking for a solution to our growing socio-economic crises.

The “ONE SMALL TOWN” strategy takes an entirely new approach towards reviving our towns, our lives, and economies, and provides investors with many exciting new, stable and safe investment opportunities. It is a community-driven structure presenting a viable economic model that benefits all participants.

Investors will for the first time participate in a partnership with the entire community, creating new businesses and industries across all sectors. This is a model that unifies entire communities towards a common goal, and fosters exponential economic growth potential. When implemented, it will result in community-focused, financially-abundant towns with maximum employment and new levels of security for all its inhabitants.

Follow the progress of the implementation on the Kuruman page of the ONE SMALL TOWN website -


The Task Team Leader is Michael Matshaka - who is the person that initiated the first contact with me and made the introductions to the Executive Mayor. More to come...

In Unity
