Community News 3 Comments 785

MAAKUBU – The days of Maakubu Village’s residents travelling long distances to have documents scanned, copied or emailed are a thing of the past. The villagers were provided with a Copy and Data Centre by Moruleng Mining last Thursday.

Speaking to community members gathered at Roka Malepe Tribal Hall, the CEO of Moruleng, Emmanuel Makgoga, said they aimed to improve the lives of the people in the mining area.
“We just started mining at Annesley Andalusite Mine (Penge Mine) about four months ago and we saw it suitable to change the lives of the locals for the better. We were saddened to see the youth travel more than 40 kilometres just to access the Internet,” Makgoga said.
He highlighted that the centre will improve the overall pass rate in Maakubu.

“Learners will access the Internet and do their school assignments with ease at no cost,” he added.

According to Makgoga, his company vows to uplift communities by empowering them with access to technology. He reiterated that other villages surrounding the mine will also be equipped with copy and data centres.
The centre offers printing, copying, Internet services and also has telephone access.
Moruleng Mining also plans to implement other services such as computer training, bookkeeping and accounting, as well as business plans and company profiles.
Spokesman for the Roka Malepe Tribal Council, Charles Malepe, thanked the company on behalf of Chief Kgoshigadi Kgetja Malepe.

“We are grateful for the gifts handed to us. It will definitely improve the standard of education and life in general in our village.”

    It is dangerous to pay a lip service to the community as well as the students at Maakubu village. CEO stated last Thursday they met the community members, but in my knowledge it was only those previlaged people claiming that they are Royal family only, no meeting were called from community members.
    At school no student is benefiting from the computers they brought to the Royal family. No internet including technology is benefited by any student from Manawe high school. All these resources were given to the Royal family.

    As CEO please ensure that when making statent like what you made please think that we are part of the community members also. You are given project on the back doors without any consultation to community members. You are a liar including the same Charles who thanks you.
