The majority of the people of Letlhakeng are considered part of the Bakwena tribe, which is administered from the kgotla in Molepolole. However, aside from the Bakwena version of standard Setswana (known as Se-kwena), many people speak a version of Se-Kgalagadi - a language distinct from but related to Setswana.
Letlhakeng houses a secondary school (Mphuthe Community Secondary) which moved into new buildings in 2008 following relocation from a previous site prone to subsidence. A clinic serves the community as well as three primary schools and a number of local government offices. Until 2005, the tarred roads ended at the village centre and onward journeys were seasonally interrupted due to the gravel or sand roads. However, it is now possible to travel to most neighbouring villages without difficulty following a major road building programme.
There are three schools in Letlhakeng being;
- Letlhakeng Primary School
- Gothibamang Primary School
- Mphuthe Junior Secondary School
