Webinar: Critical reflections on the Mafereka commission and the Bapo ba Mogale case

29 April 2021 @ 11:00 am 12:30 pm

The North West Government has ignored all calls to release the findings of a commission of inquiry into traditional leadership claims, chaired by Joe Mafereka (Mafereka Commission). The Bapo Ba Mogale Traditional community is directly affected by this lack of transparency, which amounts to clear abuse of power by the North West Government.

Join us as experts and community members unpack this critical topic and analyse the implications, lessons and future direction for Bapo ba Mogale and other mine-affected communities. The webinar will highlight the findings of the Mafereka Commission, discuss the remedies available under these circumstances and encourage a larger participation from various stakeholders to demand transparency and accountability on issues relating to mining royalties.

SPEAKERS:
Moray Hathorn – Webber Wentzel (consultant)
Joseph Rapanyana – Bapo ba Mogale community member
Wilmien Wicomb – Legal Resource Centre

MODERATOR:
Matshidiso Dibakwane – Corruption Watch
