Community Demands Economic Empowerment

Angry Limpopo residents submit a memorandum of demands to the African Rainbow Minerals group

Mining magnate, Patrice Motsepe, has been given a memorandum of demands by over 400 angry residents living next to Modikwa, a platinum mine in the Greater Tubatse Municipality and also the subsidiary of Motsepe’s African Rainbow Minerals group.

The community demand that Motsepe should empower them economically because, “We have been frustrated for a long time because Motsepe's mines are making huge profits, but our people remain disadvantaged."

According to the group leader, Godfrey Letlaka, the community established Section 21, a representative group to act in their interest.
