It is the administrative and commercial centre of the Mopani district and also the former capital of Gazankulu Banstustan. In many ways it still resembles a friendly traditional village and the people of Giyani are known for colourful folklore, which includes two recorded folktales, along with 1900 proverbs. Giyani is also rich in cultural history, with royal families dating as far back as 1822.
