Manghweni village in Limpopo as any rural area does not have enough job opportunities for its inhabitants. Community projects might be initiated and developed to provide community residents with opportunities to either start their own small businesses or work for part-time jobs under the municipality or the local leadership. This would contribute to the socio-economical survival. In the past 10 years, many community led project have been found failing and abandoned. The need to palliate the root causes of community project deliverables failure and abandonment and the necessity to set and successfully implement appropriate remedial strategies in Manghweni prompted this paper. The physics reasoning behind the grey rationale analysis methodology has been employed in this qualitative study where structured questionnaires were administered in a semi-structured interviews. Secondary data from recorded municipality information center were also used. Findings identified failure root causes as expressed by the Pareto diagrams. Based on the above, strategies for sustainability of future community led projects in Manghweni are discussed while the most suitable outcome alternatives are derived from the grey rationale analysis on the above.
