Be careful out there amongst the robots in Burgersfort. Not


only has the traffic lights at the intersection of the Morone
Centre and Dirk Winterbach Street the tendency to to
display solid red all at the same time (permanently), but it
seems that a least three poles of the family of lights at the
Steelpoort crossing were wiped out by reckless drivers. It
seems if those lights that survived lost their heads and kept
their reds in the process! Luckily all who know the area
quickly figured the strange array of burning lights out, but
for those not familiar it turned into a nightmare. Then the
problem of those drivers who just ignored a solid red also
persisted ....

They What was probably the last straw in the saga around Xstrata Alloys’ Lion plant outside
Steelpoort, was when Greater Tubatse Municipality Mayor, Ralepane Mamekoa’s house
was set alight last week Thursday evening in Eerstegeluk and his vehicle destroyed,
presumably by protesters who were shot at with rubber bullets by the Police when they
marched from Eerstegeluk to the Lion plant the previous night (Platinum Gazette of 1
April has the article). About 50 protesters were also arrested and two Policemen slightly
injured.The next day Government decided that talks should be held in Polokwane and

klapped the following statement was issued by the government after the talks:
“Talks to deal with violence protests by residents of under Tubatse Steelpoort
Community in Greater Tubatse Municipality under Sekhukhune District Municipality have
just been concluded today (Friday last week).
The meeting was convened by the provincial government in partnership with the
Sekhukhune District Municipality. In attendance were representatives of Tubatse /
Steelpoort Forum, Xstrata Mine management, community representatives, traditional

them and leaders from the affected villages and other government departments.
The talks were initially scheduled to be held at Xstrata Mine in Steelpoort but later
rescheduled to Polokwane due to the tense atmosphere.
On the agenda was the memorandum of grievances submitted by the Tubatse
Steelpoort community three weeks ago.

The community demands the following:

That mines need to do more regarding empowering local communities through
employment and other economic spin-offs,
That Xstrata Alloys, revise its targets and start training locals with the purpose

That Xstrata should understand and comply with government procurement

That mining houses should embark seriously on developmental initiatives

That the mine and the affected communities will establish a Communication

That a government led Task Team be appointed to audit the information

then they represented as observers.

Government wishes to express itself to the acknowledgement that poverty and


unemployment are the main causes of frictions within communities and mines, and more
need to be done.
However, communities are blamed for taking the law into its own hand rather than
engaging on peaceful means of resolving disputes. In addition, government wishes to

talked, and point a finger at communities for marching to the mines instead of marching to
government as voted by them.
In response to concerns by communities that traditional leaders are empowering
themselves through tenders and jobs for pals in the mines, government advocates for
mutual understanding and working together with the communities. The ideal situation is
for traditional leaders to serve their people not their personal needs, with communities
respecting the role, functions and powers of their traditional leaders.

gevernmental organisation, together with the
National Youth Development Agency
(NYDA), organised a workshop between
various stakeholders which was also
attended by representatives of the Tubatse
Human Resources Development (HRD)
Forum yesterday.
The Tubatse HRD Forum comprises all
the heads of Human Resources
Development departments of primarily mines
in the area. The delegated Modikwa
Platinum Mine HRD Leader, Dr James
Lidderd, as their representative at the
workshop. Dr Lidderd explained to all
roleplayers exactly what is neccessary when
somebody wanted to be employed at a mine.
He explained that prospective jobseekers
who want learnerships, will be selected as
they need to have passed certain subjects at
school and have the aptitude to complete
training. He said any training or qualification
a candidate have, may not be sufficient,
especially if it is not technically inclined. He
also explained to all present at the workshop
how a CV should be compiled and what type
of information it must contain to make it
easier for prospective employers to select
candidates for positions that may become
available.
The workshop was also attended by the
local HIV/Aids ambassador, Ms Helen
Moshoana, representatives from Greater
Tubatse Municipality’s Human Resources
Department and the Tubatse Youth Council.
According to Tubatse Partnerships
yesterday’s workshop informed stakeholders
about various aspects around employment,
while an unemployed graduate database is
also in the process of being compiled. This
database will be forwarded to inter alia the
Tubatse HRD Forum so that they can use it a
a source of possible skills they seek in the
area.

Phoenix Flying Squad is actively involved in fighting crime, not only


in the mining environment in which they operate, but also through
awareness in communities.
The Company has provided security at festivals, awareness days
and even a State of the Municipality address. At such days they’ve
also brought along some of the dogs used to sniff out explosives
and track suspected criminals. The dogs are well trained and the
evidence they recover is accepted at trails in South African courts.
At special days when these dogs show their stuff for an audience,
the people are spell bound. Following the commands and move-
ments of trainer or handler and dog with concentration.
The awareness of the dog’s capabilities is one of the ways in which
crime is fought. People who are more informed are less likely to
take any chances with a canine trained to find criminals. These
educational displays are part of how
they give back to the community.
Phoenix Flying Squad often holds
road blocks to ensure that specified
areas are kept safe and secure for
their clients and community
members moving through.
At such check points dogs can also
be used.

Protection for the consumer, what do you think?


The Consumer Protection Act, 68 of 2008
came into effect on 1 April 2011, but what
does this mean?
Many consumers have not even heard of this
Act and don’t know what the implications will
be.
One of the major aims of the Act is to provide
a fair, accessible and sustainable
marketplace for products or services. It will
promote responsible consumer behaviour
and help prohibit unfair marketing and
business practices.
Some of the implications of the act include
that suppliers may not limit access to goods
or services. Suppliers may not exclude
certain groups from access to products or
services. E.g. they may not advertise a
special and say: ‘no hawkers’.
Consumers will also have the right to query
inferior quality products.
Your right to privacy will further be protected. Mnr. Adriaan Briel sê: “Ek weet nie veel Mnr. Ollie Oliver sê: “Jy kan my niks van Mr Reginald Setshabe said: “It is a good

repairs, you will only be liable to pay for
repairs you’ve approved before they started
the work.
Consumers are now able to return unsafe or
defective goods to a store within a
reasonable time. The store will then have to
provide a full refund for the product.
You will also be able to demand paying the
lower price should two different prices be
displayed for the same product.
These are just some of the implications of the
Act. Should you want to complain there are
places to go. Giving the consumer a place to
complain is part of what the Act is about.
We asked readers whether they know about
the Act and how they feel it will impact the
market place and individuals in South Africa.
