Tubatse Police Station took the lead this year with regards to making people and the community they serve newly aware of the dangers of HIV/AIDS and the devastating effect the illness can have on society. Together with Education, Health and Welfare roleplayers, cluster peer educators and personnel from Praktiseer Clinic they gathered early Monday morning at the hall at the Police Staion in Praktiseer for a candle lighting ceremony to create awareness, educate and support victims and their families. Although World Aids Day was only yesterday on 1 December, the Police decided on Monday Morning because of a hectic festive season schedule.

16 days of activism Burgersfort Police partnered with the Community Policing Forum, Pastors Against Crime as well as the youth and women from Gowe Parish last week Friday as part of activities of the 16 days of activism against violence against women and children. The campaign was held in Burgersfort and Steelpoort, whereafter the group went to the bridge in the vicinity of Jorge Resort between the two towns on the R555 road. At the bridge they prayed for safety on this road as a large number of accidents regularly take place along this route.

this gruesome accident happened early last week Friday on the R555 route between Lion Smelter and Steelpoort. Later in the day the road became gridlocked for hours (mainly because of impatient motorists) when the road was closed to clean up the accident scene. Platinum Gazette had to take the route via Lydenburg to complete the day’s newspaper distribution run. (Photograph: Facebook)

Mine managers and mayors talk at Two Rivers PlaƟnum A very important meeting between mine managers and the new mayors of Sekhukhune District and Fetakgomo Greater Tubatse took place at Two Rivers Platinum last week. Sekhukune District executive mayor, Cllr Stanley Keyamotseng Ramaila, his mayoral committee, other councillors and officials, as well as Fetakgomo / Greater Tubatse Mayor, Cllr Johannes Choris Phokane, met with general managers of mines in the Eatern Limb and their support staff to lay a foundation for the way forward for the next couple of years. The meeting centred around the roles the mining houses play in the area, their investment in communities through their Social Labour Plans (SPL)and other initiatives as well as the role government should play to create an envrionment condusive to prosperious businesses and in turn communities. Taking the lead, Mayor Ramaila told the meeting that “ ... in the discourse of economic development and policy, there are many theoretical approaches and understanding depending on which school of thought one comes from. There are those who argue that government should solely play a role of enabler and regulator and allow private sector to drive development and growth and on the other hand there are those who argue that government should take the centre stage by becoming the driver of economic development and growth. Our view is that neither of these two paradigms can work on their own. We fully subscribe to the notion of a developmental state wherein the role of the state becomes that of leading different actors and players in society towards a shared development trajectory. Our view is that for South Africa and indeed for Sekhukhune to go forward, we need to construct a social compact, a compact between government, labour, business and civil society. Each component or role players within the social compact should be aware of its responsibilities and fulfil them to the benefit of society”. Later on in his address he also said “We have experienced situations wherein many of our mines had to close as communities resorted to mass protests often accompanied by public violence. Meeting here this morning, we need a critical engagement on what are causes of these ongoing protests: - Is it because mining companies are not fulfilling their commitments as captured in their social and labour plans? -Is it because of high levels of poverty and unemployment in our communities thereby creating added pressure on our mines to employ more people? -Is it because of lack of coherent planning and working relationship between Magoshi, Mines and Municipalities? - Is it because of the inability of government to create stable and secure environment conducive for economic growth and development? These are questions that we need to

thoroughly engage as we grapple with issues of social and economic development. As new leadership of the municipality, we want to express our desire and willingness to play an active role in ensuring that we improve the conditions around the mining industry”. After Mayor Ramaila’s speech, mine managers got the opportunity to air their challenges, visions and how they see the future working with government to create a prosperous district. The mine managers explained to the mayors that their area is different from areas such as Rustenburg in more than one way. Locally the mines are relatively modernised with less employees than what is needed at the mines in Rustenburg. The local mines are also from many different companies while the Rustenburg area has three major mining companies operating. Mr JJ Joubert, General Manager of Two Rivers Platinum Mine told the meeting that in the last year they’ve invested an additional R10 million in the area, over and above their SLP commitments. The managers agreed that even though they stretch as far as possible in difficult economic conditions, it seems that communities are seldom satisfied. Another problem all of them share is the uncertainty of recognised community representative structures. Often one group negotiates and reaches an agreement with regards to allocation of resources for development in communities, only to be replaced by another shortly after the mine has concluded their meetings with the first group. Other challenges include the red tape that often surrounds some government departments. SLP’s are often not approved in time for a specific financial year, while demands on budgets are made through different community and governmental channels for that money. Some of the mines also have the challenge of being on the border of Mpumalanga and Limpopo. This result in demands on their resources from both sides’ governments and communities. The forum created through this meeting will be meeting more often in future to assist in creating an optimal growth environment through which the mines, communities and government can work together to make the area a prosperous beacon in South Africa.
