Welcome to Lebone II – College of the Royal Bafokeng
Lebone means “light” in the Setswana language.
Lebone II College was named after its founder, former Kgosi (King) Mollwane Lebone Boikanyo Molotlegi, chief of the Royal Bafokeng Tribe of South Africa.
Lebone II (pronounced Lebone the Second) is a school both rooted in an extraordinary African culture, the Royal Bafokeng Nation and poised towards a global future. It is a school that encourages curiosity and experimentation while following the example of some of the best educational institutions around the world.
The Royal Bafokeng take a unique approach to their future. Stemming from the foresight to secure ownership of their ancestral lands in the 1800’s, this led to their becoming the richest tribe in the world following the discovery of Platinum on the land in the 1920’s. With the profits from contracts with mining companies, the Nation is now able to invest in civil and infrastructural programmes to uplift their community.
