Communities are desparate for their minerals (chrome)
Community Alerts/ Mathapelo/Limpopo-Sekhukhune/13/March/2017
All this trucks are in queue to take the chrome at Ga-selepe, yes people call them Zama-Zamas. It is a bug issue in our region Sekhukhune at the moment everyone is asking about it and everyone want to be involved either by being employed or tender. Communities seem to enjoy this while forgetting safety risk that they work under. At times police drive up and down looking for the Zama-Zamas.
This operation is taking the following villages:
Ga-maroga, Ga -Mahlokwane, Ga-selepe
GA- Selala , Ga-Mampa le dinaga Mabapi.
Marula chrome is causing conflict among the communities by giving them minerals; there are meetings daily which mostly end up in protest as communities fight against each other over the minerals.
