Lefaragatlhe say NO to relocation, NO to Anglo’s open-cast mine project

‘Ga go tshamekelwe ko Lefaragatlhe’ warns Mosime as the community of Lefaragatlhe on two separate occasions chased Tshepi Tlhapane, Anglo Platinum, Kenny Mokate, Magosi Tumagole and Leruo Molotlegi out of the community. The Bafokeng leadership had on the first occasion convened a community meeting to unveil Anglo Platinum’s open-cast mine project. The project would effectively relocate a number of households who have built their houses on top of the platinum reserves. In a later occasion Leruo ‘came to impose a chief’ on the community. ‘Why basare batho ba tseye dipeke or digandaganda ba ikepele platinum ya bona. Sa bona ke go lwantsha batho ka go itlhomela kgosana ya bona ya ee baas gore atle a bafe platinamo ya rona’, Mosime a bua a galefile.
