The Greater Gaborone is known as the hotspot of Botswana’s land regime. The region represents the City of Gaborone and the surrounding villages: Tlokweng (east of Gaborone) and Mogoditshane (west of Gaborone). It has 102,000 ha, of which tribal communities own 64%, 21% is state land, and 15% is freehold land . Both Tlokweng and Mogoditshane predate the city of Gaborone, the capital of independent Botswana in the early 1960s. Since then, Gaborone has experienced strong economic growth and has been recognized as the focal point of the country’s administrative, commercial, educational, industrial, and financial fields. The city’s population has increased from 3,900 in 1964 to almost 274,000 in 2022. Greater Gaborone represents 17% of the national population, but a much higher share of the national economic output, which has always put enormous pressure on the demand for land for housing, trade, industries, and other activities . The strong demand for land began in Gaborone in the 1960s and 1970s, but it quickly spread to suburban villages, resulting in an almost insatiable demand for land characterized by auto-allocation, illegal land transactions, and land grabbing in order to exact diamond in the Greater Gaborone area. Where large-scale land-grabbing cases are more intended for production of fuel or food, scale-scale land grabbing in Botswana are more intended for lining or water supply.
