I had a chance to meet and ask questions about how COVID-19 is affecting the Lekgotla people. I met with the Chairperson and the Deputy Chairperson of Lekgotla and they are both not happy. They complained that everything seems to be stuck saying that if the government can allow mine workers to operate surely, they can also them to meet and sort things out, said the Chairperson Mr. A.R Manyako and the Deputy Chairperson Mrs B Mogobye.
“Our community is more important than any other things, but we are not saying we are going to disobey the rules, but it must also come to an end now it’s been long time now. The community of Sefikile is waiting for us to give them the reports on what happened since COVID-19, and we want to get updates from them too. We are also working, we are not sitting or relaxing and doing nothing, we are very busy and at the end of COVID-19, our community will be surprised because we have a lot of surprises for them, and the truth is they deserve some good and surprising news at the end of this crisis. What I can promise you is that there is a lot of work to be done after COVID-19 and we are going to need the community’s support. Remember, we’re working because of the power granted to us by the community,” said the two.
