Earlier this year, an out-of-court settlement amounting to five-billion Rands was reached in the class action suit involving 17 000 class representatives for former gold miners and thirty-two gold mining companies. Historically, miners have not received fair compensation and the systems supporting claims remain inadequate.
Gold mining in South Africa, from its earliest beginnings to present, has had a major and devastating impact on the health of the primarily black mine workers from across Southern Africa who were recruited to mine gold through the institution of migrant and indentured labour. Not only has the mining industry historically extracted family members out from the community, it sends them home damaged once they are no longer able to work.
In recent weeks, we have observed a series of indefensible horrors in South Africa from the appalling rape and murder of 19-year-old Uyinene Mrwetyana to gratuitous violence against foreign African nationals. This served as the backdrop of the first United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Africa consultations held at the Nelson Mandela Foundation from 10 - 11 September.
From the success of the 2018 Legacy Walk, Kaya FM has decided to do it again this year. The 2019 Legacy Walk will be held at Mushroom Park in Sandton on the 12th of October.
September found the Foundation travelling in response to invitations to visit Mexico City, Ramallah, London, Toronto, New York and the United Nations. We were honoured to receive the 2019 Culture of Peace Award from the Journalists and Writers Foundation at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City in recognition of the work we do to promote the legacy of Nelson Mandela.
