THE Itsoso Waste Management Company, a local company consisting of six members from Cassel Village in the Joe Morolong Local Municipality, received an opportunity to make a mark in the competent business space.

Established in 2009, the company got a boost by receiving a waste truck from the Joe Morolong Local Municipality in conjunction with Tshipi é Ntle Manganese Mining.

The handover was made on Tuesday (26/01) and was part of Tshipi é Ntle Manganese Mining’s Social Labour Plan (SLP) for Local Economic Development.

Itsoso formed part of the municipality’s integrated development plan (IDP) that was proposed and approved by the council of Joe Morolong.

As part of their support to this project, Tshipi é Ntle Manganese Mining’s handover also included a 10 ton trailer, 12 ton skips, office space with equipment and mentorship and training.

Further commitment to the package included a one year contract which runs concurrently with six months’ mentorship. It depends on the performance of the company whether their contract will be renewed by the mining company at the end, as the business will be treated the same as any other waste company and has to independently compete on the waste management market.

Mayor Dorcas Moremi and the general manager of Tshipi é Ntle Manganese Mining also awarded bursaries to four students in the Joe Morolong Local Municipality.

One of the bursary beneficiaries, Dilanah Motshabi, who comes from an underprivileged background in Madularanch Village, is looking foward to studying for a Bachelors of Education at the Sol Plaatje University in Kimberley. Her aim is to specialise in teaching Maths and Science.

Motshabi prides herself on being one of the best performing students in Maths and Science.
