Fochville

Fochville is a farming and mining town situated in Gauteng province in South Africa and is part of the Merafong City Local Municipality which also includes Kokosi, Carletonville and Khutsong.In the area surrounding Fochville are a number of Sotho or Tswana ruins. The Boer War hero, Danie Theron, was killed just 5 km north of the town. The town itself was only established as an agricultural centre in 1920 and was named after the World War I commander-in-chief of the Allied forces in France, Marshal of France Ferdinand Foch.In September 2012, the settlements near Fochville fell victim to some ethnic violence in which shacks were razed and burned to the ground, and four people were killed along with six injured. Apparently, the conflict was waged between two rival factions following a dispute over boundaries, making the violence a turf war. The weapons used were knobkierries, petrol cans, and traditional spears and daggers.Tourist attractionsFochville has sporting facilities at the sport stadium called Gert van Rensburg Stadium. Sporting clubs include those playing cricket, rugby, squash, yoga, kickboxing and other sports.
