“The discussion board is just not politically aligned or affiliated with an organisation. We’re ready to work, however alternatives are being taken away from Lydenburg. We’re pissed off with the shortage of abilities switch and the shortage of procurement from the mines,” stated Sello Malibe, chairperson LAF. The social labour plan (SLP) of Thaba Chweu Native Municipality clearly states that the group should profit from abilities improvement throughout the Limpopo and Mpumalanga mining area.
“Colleges should be upgraded and homes should be supplied with water and sanitation. However nothing is going on in Mashishing and Skhila. As soon as an organization is awarded mining rights, the social and labour plans it submits turns into a binding authorized doc. When you take the dwelling situations of nearly all of our residents under consideration, the SLP is being ignored by TCLM,” stated Malibe. TCLM didn’t present remark regarding the matter by the point going to press.
