Corruption Watch will be launching a report titled Improving Transparency and Accountability in the Management and Administration of Mining Royalties and/or Community, in a series of community and stakeholder engagements that are scheduled to take place on 26 March in Johannesburg and 27 – 28 March in the North West province.

The report examines the management and administration of mining royalties. The research work is closely linked to the Maluleke Commission of Inquiry into the Bakgatla ba Kgafela community, former public protector Thuli Madonsela’s report on the misappropriated millions of the Bapo ba Mogale community, and the evidence brought by community members during the Corruption Watch community consultative engagement meetings in the North West.

Corruption Watch chairperson Mavuso Msimang will deliberate, at the Johannesburg launch, on the vulnerabilities in the governance of mining royalties, together with other stakeholders including the Department of Mineral Resources, private sector officials, Maluleke Commission evidence leaders, mining law experts, and community leaders.

The engagements will bring into perspective the current state of the mining sector in relation to mining royalties and will discuss possible solutions to ensure accountability, good governance and transparent systems.

Corruption Watch invites you to attend the launch of the mining royalties report:
