Community Not Consulted on Reopening of Mines

16th April
Sefikile
By AMO TSHABALALA.

After the speech of Mr President on the 09 April 2020, over the weekend we saw letter from the mine, (SIYANDA BAKGATLA PLATINUM MINE) written by the mine General Manager that workers have to return back to work. But then as the community of Sefikile we felt that we were supposed to be consulted as we’ll be the ones exposed to this PANDEMIC. HOW?


Their workers are renting at our community and it means our village is their first stop before the mine. Now we felt that from their homes some they will be carrying the virus and we felt that we should have been consulted as we’ll be ones exposed to it.
