Hi Chris, 
Contact the Demarcation Board, or download from their website.
They have the 2011 and 2016 boundaries available.

Is there a formal/ legal source of municipal boundary positions especially for boundary between Johannesburg and Tshwane municipalities

We believe good spatial information leads to superior planning, diminished project risks, improved feasibility assessments and efficient resource utilisation.

  Hi Gavin,
  I did see the one using "another layer", but that is problematic as when one is digitising (say) a town road network you would want to honour the straightness of the roads and then intersect them afterwards.

If you're doing it while digitising I would rather set up snapping perfectly then node intersections while digitising. As simple as stopping a line and starting a new one instead of just clicking a vertex at an intersection. 

  Hence "popping out" to other facilities just messes up your work-flow.

  Will look at the scripting options  - for now this is just a training exercise in teaching digitising principals.

  Thanks & keep well,
