COURT RULING ON XOLOBENI A VICTORY FOR MINING-AFFECTED COMMUNITIES 

Oxfam South Africa welcomes the Pretoria High Court ruling against the Department of Minerals and Energy, and the Australian company, Transworld Energy and Mineral Resources (TEMR) over the right to mine in Xolobeni in the Wild Coast of the Eastern Cape.

The court ordered the minister of mineral resources to obtain full and formal consent from the Xolobeni community prior to granting any mining rights on their land. This after the Amadiba Crisis Committee launched a court action to protect their environment following the request by TEMR’s application for rights to mine the titanium-rich sands at the Umgungundlovu area of Xolobeni.

As OxfamSA we celebrate this, not only as the victory for the people of Xolobeni, but for all the mining-affected communities in South Africa most of whom have for a long time endured brutal bullying at the hands of government and the mining multinationals. Read more
