Corruption Watch will visit with community members in Bakwena ba Mogopa, North West, next week as part of a project to research and understand the impact of the maladministration of mining royalties on communities in the region, and to identify the gaps in the legislative and policy frameworks that adversely affect the processes.
The aim is to evaluate the main challenges facing these communities who are looking for accountability and transparency over the administration of community royalties, and the problems around the access to key information such as resolutions and financial documents.
The key component in this project is comprehensive community engagement with the people of Bakwena ba Mogopa. The scope of the project requires a high level of participation from all levels of the community in order to achieve the expected outcomes and fully appreciate the information given.
Members of the media are invited to the following meetings:
- Bethanie Kgotla – 13 November 2017
