New development with no community consultation

Community Alerts/Modise Tlhako/Klerksdorp/02 June 2017

Next to the D1 and D2 un-functional shafts owned by Shiva uranium mine. We now see another project in motion. I honestly can’t say it’s a development project as it did not hire our poverty stricken people. At this stage, they are busy erecting a very long fence. I was told that it is a game reserve which I know will certainly not create job opportunities for our people. What struck me and came as a shock was to hear that there are graves inside the fenced area; families were not consulted to this effect.  I am restless about this issue and would be certainly collecting more information to determine the number of graves inside and the owner of the new venture.
