Ntloe Mabe, originally a resident of Mabieskraal (Pilansberg), Rustenburg District, [Western] Transvaal [now North West Province] was banished on 19 December 1955 to Driefontein Native Trust Farm, Vryburg, [Western] Transvaal [now North West Province]. 

Mabe was one of five counsellors of the Bathlako community, together with Chief Jeremiah Mabe, that was banished from Mabieskraal to the Driefontein banishment camp. It was claimed that their presence in Mabieskraal was “inimical to the peace, order and good government of the African people living there.”
