Industry

Sebokeng was established as a home for workers who worked in the industrial plants in the area, such as SASOL, ISCOR and SAMANCOR. The years following 1994 saw a large scale retrenchment of workers due to industrial restructuring, privatization, and/or corporatization of former state-run industrial enterprises, resulting in a huge increase in the levels of general unemployment. However, some residents continue to work in the surrounding heavy industries.
