Comment on this story

Johannesburg - Khanyisile Kweyama, the executive director at Anglo American in South Africa, took to social media yesterday for a conversation about mining.

Kweyama, who is attending this week’s Investing in African Mining Indaba in Cape Town, fielded a range of questions via Twitter (@AngloAmericanZA). Here is how the conversation went:


How important are the public-private partnerships in the African mining industry? – @africaceoforum #MiningMatters

They are important as the public sector brings in capital and planning and the private sector brings expertise and project management – KK (@khanyisilekweya)

Where is the blue sky scenario on RSA mining? Or is it all doom and gloom? – @ProMattLester #MiningMatters

There is a vision for mining strategy developed by the industry with government. We must stick to that strategy for our blue sky – KK

How much longer can the mining companies stay in SA with the current strikes? – @sabokke1925

We should remain positive as the strikes are not desirable for anybody and we must keep on seeking solutions – KK

Would Anglo support a call for est. a #SovereignWealthFund funded through extractives to -support #BasicIncome? – @Thabileng

We are open to being a part of that conversation and have said this previously - KK

On a scale of 1-10, how would you gauge SA govt’s response to the crisis in mining? Is it a crisis? – @Ellis_Mnyandu #MiningMatters

Government is responsive to industry concerns but they need to collaborate more with the mining industry to come to solutions – KK
