Community alerts/Mmathapelo Thobejane/Limpopo, Ditoebeleng/16-05-2018
On 26/04/2018 Livestock owners representative, SEJN (Sekhukhune Environmental Justice Network) and (Benchmarks Foundation)BMF representative Eric and Joseph had a meeting at Moopetsi offices of Twickenham mine. This meeting was a follow up of the meeting that SEJN had early in April where the Social Performance manager of Twickenham told us that the livestock owners need to submit the lab test results before they can give them compensation of the livestock that died in their stream.
The meeting was a success and we manage to hold them accountable and tell the management to keep their promises the SPM told us they will book a meeting for us to meet General manager of the mine Deen Breet and we agreed that the meeting must be attended by the representative of livestock owners and SEJN because it’s been long time the Manager told us that he is communicating with the GM. We will be meeting the General Manager of Twickenham before the end of this month. Thanks to the BMF team for the support. ✊🏿✊🏿✊🏿
