One community member speaking said; "We are saying, we understand that the matter that we dealing with right now is a very big matter. We understand that there are environment specialist that needs to be there, but today as the community we have compiled these files that has all the documents that has been required by the DMR and it was not an easy journey to acquire this file because of informer official of DMR, Sunday Mabaso, was taking us from pillar to post, and today he is the same person consulting for this company wanting to come and mine in the West Rand. What are the people of West Rand doing? We are here and we are ready to do it ourselves."
