 The period between 1990 to 1994 saw an outbreak of extensive violence in the East Rand, particularly in the areas of Katlehong, Vosloorus and Tokoza. The then State President FW De Klerk, in conjunction with the Transitional Executive Council on 1 February 1994 appointed a Task Group, called the Katorus Task Group, to address the problems in the area.  
 In later years, President Mbeki continued the practise established by President Nelson Mandela of identifying Presidential Projects (PPs) that address particularly egregious problem areas created under the Apartheid regime.
