Interests: Community / Customary Land Rights
I am a South Africa black male person staying in Douglas, Siyancuma Municipality, Pixley Ka Seme District in the Northern Cape Province. I am 51 years old and resigned from government in 2012 as the Correctional Supervision & Parole Board Chairperson and i revive our NPO that we started in a rural area called Salt Lake. the reason for all this was to human rights violation that took place from evictions on farm to blatantly denying communities their constitutional rights, access to housing, lack of clean water and sanitation. I am holding a Hons. Degree in Development Studies and has lots of experience the 3 spheres of government, as Development Practitioner by profession i felt guilty to witness our community living in abstract poverty and they can help themselves due to their educational levels in understanding what they are told what they deserves as the prescripts of the law. I am in the civil society fraternal since 1994 and its the passion i have to help people but lack of funding hampers the community initiatives that are planned because of the ownership of the project and its all about bottom up approaches which has make me unpopular with authorities. I strongly believe that giving a chance with the support needed. I could help steer the community to a self reliance community. I start to work full time in our NPO in 2016 to date under difficult conditions. My experience IN COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT has built me in the person I am today, and i believe in fighting for the rights of the vulnerable people like farm workers and farm dwellers, people staying in informal settlements, socio-economic rights of people living in areas where renewable energy projects are build and the communities are not enjoying the rights they should
