Community Alerts/ Francina Nkosi/Lephalale-Limpopo/21 June 2017
On the 09-06-2017 Social Audit was introduced at Marapong Lephalale in Limpopo Province then after we will go to all rural areas of Lephalale supported by ActionAid S.A. Tribal Authorities were invited and Seleka Tribal Council blessed us to continue with our work.
Social Audit were done by Communities affected by Mining and door to door was done asking communities about Social Labour Plan and the answers was, NO they don’t know anything about it and haven’t seen it or heard anything about it , not having an idea of what is being used for .
The aim is to make the community aware about their rights towards the mines and Eskom not being reliable for Social responsibilities to the communities living next to extractive. Communities are not informed in anything were by we are ignored so we need employment. There is a lot of unemployment because of the influx of people caused by Medupi Power Station. By Francina Nkosi
