Members of Kopano formation were in Mahwelereng Magistrate court today because the traditional council of Ga Kgubudi under the leadership of Mr John Malesela Kekana has open a case against us activists when we have manage to stop Ivanplats mine for burial of our ancestral remains which were relocated by the mine. This head man was paid by the
mine to look for a new burial site. Instate he eat the money together with his young brother Malose Kekana who works at the mine. And decided to take the ploughing field area that belongs to the community and turn it to be a grave yard.
What happened in court is that their lawyer Mr Smit was not ready to proceed with the case. Meanwhile our lawyers, Mr Advocate Makofane and Advocate Moshweu were ready to proceed with the case. Then he was given 5 days Mr Smit to prepare his paper work. The case is still on.
