Community Alerts/Cde Selowa-Limpopo Province/27 October 2016


The community is tired and reached a boiling point due to empty promises by Bokoni platinum mines, this mine are situated at sekhukhune/fetakgomo municipality in Limpopo province. We arranged a meeting to discuss about date upon which the community will engage in a protest. This action will take place because the houses we stay in poses a serious danger, and this happens as results of mine operations in our neighbourhood. The shaft Braakfontein located 1,5km from relocation houses. Katlego Makgopa is one of community members who feels scared under the roof her mother, this house may fall due cracks which are so visible, during rainy seasons the situation becomes worse. Richard spoor, a lawyer who is dealing with this case said, the mine delays to give response to him in this regard,this in itself had also motivated the planned protest action.
