Molepolole is the most populated village in the country with 63,248 people. The Bakwena capital is made up of two constituencies which stretch beyond the village with Molepolole North being home to 34,947 people while Molepolole South has 36 714 people. The issue of water shortage and roads that are not tarred remain big challenges.

Besides water shortage and bad roads, villagers decry lack of sewerage system, storm water drainage system, land shortage, unemployment, poor health facilities as well as soaring crime.

With the water situation having persisted for decades, some villagers say they have decided to abstain from voting.  Residents of Molepolole have been experiencing occasional dry spells for as far back as three decades.
