Developments in and around Rustenburg are very slow and indeed dissapointing. Are there any bigger plans to breath kinda life into this small, yet beautiful, picturesque town? Rustenburg platinum mines must the biggest producer of platinum and other minerals, but the town remains so poor. It becomes so saturated with shoppers especially month ends, with very limited space taken over by vendors. Something needs doing urgently, after all Rustenburg is one of the host town of 2010 world cup football.
