Today 29/05/2018 SEJN, representative of livestock owners from Modimolle, Ditoebeleng, Mantsekane, Serafa, Dithabaneng, Ga-Makgopa and Maakgake. The meeting was about compensation of livestock that died at the mine stream and we where to meet General Manager of Twickenham Daniel Breet. It was the unfortunate that G.M did not attend the meeting and send Social Performance manager of Twickenham to talk to us. He told us that G.M gave him a figure of R2000-00 for cattle and R500-00 for goats. That were the meeting stopped and we demanded to see G.M on 8/05/2018 or else we want to go to Marshalltown at Anglo head office because the GM does not want to meet the livestock owners. And we agreed on writing a letter to G.M today and send to him tomorrow to call him to the meeting on 8/06/2018.
Livestock owners representative also make it clear that they don’t want R2000-00 and suggest the GM to go and buy cattle for them with the R2000-00 that he want to compensate them with. The meeting ended after 10 minutes caucus that was requested and we demanded to end the meeting there.
