Musina-Makhado March 22nd -31st 2021

Recent fieldwork in Musina-Makhado in March 22nd -31st 2021 again underline the relative lack of knowledge transfer between the provincial government agency, the Limpopo Economic Development Agency (LEDA), the Environmental Impact Assessment practitioner Delta BEC and communities in the area on the proposed Musina Makhado Special Economic Zone that promises close to 55 000 jobs for locals. The African Centre for Citizenship and Democracy (ACCEDE researchers and Mining Affected Communities Unite in Action (MACUA), together with Friedrich Ebert Stiftung’s Climate and Energy Coordinator, Richard Worthington, met with the Mulambwane Community, the Leshiba, the Vhembe District Community Property Owners Association (CPA) Forum, the Mudimele Community and the Musina MACUA Group. Communities have been empowered to be able to participate effectively and meaningfully in further public participation processes.
