As part of Matutu Milling’s continued commitment to community development Mr Derrick Nxumalo and Mr Jabulani Nkosi has been very busy this week clearing bush for two new exciting projects!
The first is an Adult Learning center close to Rakoko Highschool, in Mabeskraal. Matutu was approached by the Department of Education a few weeks ago with a request for assistance. At that stage our TLB was down for repairs but once up and running we made it a priority to go out and assist where we can. Education and training is very important for the upliftment of South African citizens and we hope that this new center will assist with this great need.
As you might know Adult learning is one of the objectives of the Social Labour Plan set out by the Department of Minerals and Energy and the construction of this site will ensure that the local mines have a place to send those who need this training.
The second project is a brick making factory initiative by the tribal authority of the Batlhko Ba Matutu. Matutu Milling has been in talks with the Tribal authority for several years looking at such a factory as some of the residues from the Matutu Process can be used in these products. The project aims to produce paving bricks that can be used by the municipality to upgrade local roads.
In the coming weeks Matutu will also start with the construction of the road leading up the mountain where it plans to build a radio tower. Watch this space for more updates.
