In acknowledging the role businesses play in alleviating social challenges such as unemployment by creating job opportunities in its communities, the Kolomela Mine continues with engagement platforms for stakeholders.

The mine recently hosted engagement sessions with local business forums, farmers and municipal management to strengthen the message of its commitment. That entails that it remains a responsible corporate citizen through business practices and remains transparent in engagements when dealing with stakeholders and key issues. According to the mining company, various business forums have already been introduced, along with their capabilities and the work they are doing within the community.

One of the engagement sessions saw Themba Mkhwanazi, chief executive officer (CEO) of Kumba Iron Ore, being acknow­ledged for the good work he has done in empowering local businesses thus far.

“The Kumba delegation and CEO were taken out on a tour to one of the local business in the Boichoko community, where they received the opportunity to see how the small businesses ope­rate,” a media statement from the mine stated.

Part of the stakeholder engagements were utilised to facilitate meet and greet sessions with the local farmers, and to engage with them on a social level.

“At the meet and greet session held at Soetfontein, one of the farmers, Jim Bredenkamp, mentioned how the local farmers felt very privileged to have the CEO in their midst. He further highlighted the good relationship the farmers have with the Kolomela Mine, to Mkhwanazi.”

The stakeholder engagement sessions are lauded for the potential of building a legacy for future generations.
