Monametse village in Limpopo Fetakgomo-Tubatse municipality is slowly turning into a ghost town after Bokoni Platinum Mine was put on care and maintenance which has let to more shops closing down. Some community members were relying on backrooms as a source of income, now their back rooms are empty with some of them being demolished. The mine has been put on care and maintenance without an alternative means of survival. Although the Social and Labour Plan has outline few income generating projects for the community, the mine has failed to implement them. Some community members resorted to illegal chrome mining which has also been halted after the death of two employees.
