On very short notice more than 300 Henley-on-Klip residents came together to get more information with regards to the Afrimat furnace. The elderly residents of Henley-on-Klip to the youth from the Oprah Winfrey School attended.
The meeting was very well structured with Stan Wallace explaining the previous application made by Afrimat and their withdrawal to the current application that’s 6.6 times bigger. Pieter Colyn again addressed the community on the process going forward and what we as a community should do.
Numerous questions were raised and addressed by the most knowledgeable person. One of which was whether Oprah is aware of the Afrimat Furnace application and the representatives of the school confirmed that she is aware and the document previously sent to the mine will be communicated.
During the meeting an art competition amongst the schools was mentioned that is currently in development. Other events were also raised but will be addressed in due time.
