Please join us for discussions with the Right2Know, the South Durban Community Environmental Alliance, the Market Users Committee, the Treatment Action Campaign and the Amadiba Crisis Committee.

Speaker Bio:
Nonhle Mbuthuma is the Spokesperson of the Amadiba Crisis Committee (ACC). She took part in the forming of this structure at the traditional community court Umgungundlovu Komkhulu (Great Place) in Xolobeni on the Wild Coast in August 2007. This was following the conflict with Australian mining company MRC whose extraction activities became a concern for the community. Nonhle was one of the ten first elected to the executive of the ACC, which today is a mass organisation in seven villages and still expanding. ACC’s executive was re-elected in the villages in October 2016 after the assassination of Bazooka Radebe and today comprises a majority woman, reflecting the strong position of women among AmaMpondos.
