Although there is some dispute about the origin of the name of this small village, it is generally believed that it was named after the Reverend John Fletcher. Founded in 1882, the village can easily be mistaken for the African version of a Wild West town with its dusty streets and colourfully clad horsemen of the Xesibe and Hluhi clans. Sheep farming is the main activity of the area.
