  1. Good day to all South Africans especially Bokone Bophirima Peoples. I am posting this comment with a broken heart. Can someone in Taung/BagaMaidi update me about what is going on about our R50 we peacefully donate to our Tribal Authorityfor the process of our Diamonds Mining Permit. Why maar public information is not provided to public in time maar in Taung. If you start posting questions about this matter at home, you are mistaken, why our public information we brought to Taung with our R50 is s CONFIDENTIAL? Esp only accessible to under-educated polliticians and Puppet leaders. Why public information in Taung always comes out with value? We are the Fulltime residents of Taung who knows a lot about our God given Diamonds, and we Bags Maidi have contributed money for out leaders to get our Mining permit, but no one seems to care about yelling us exactly what is currently going on. Up until we the son of soil, Taung Young Bloods come out of boxes and show what need to be done for us to access our legally unmined diamonds, there will be no one to give a clarity up until we see diamond moguls from abroad flooding in our areas and rob our hungry for success Leaders out of our own Diamonds. This has been reported to happen before and is still happening cause no one shows to care about legalizing our diamonds mining. What is happening about our permit? And where is it? And why some one is still holding it under the table? Why it is not presented to the communities of Taung for any public inputs if necessary? Why is actually important for it to benefit some peoples because of maybe they are more knowledgeable than others? Or maybe because of their temporary superior status in our poorest communities? I am wondering what the peoples who are holding our permit are telling the investors? I suspect they are telling them that public knows everything about mining in their own areas because school are being build, Tribal Centres, etc by the Mining Giants. Is it a mistake maybe we can know as public what is happening. Because the last news was in Gauteng West Rand when I formally heared about our Mining Process in Taung. And I signed the Petition. And I also suspect peoples in Taung poorest dusty villages was not informed about those meeting held in GP representing them without their concern. Haai, information in Taung is difficult, only certain peoples or must I say Puppets,labdogs have full knowledge of Taung news. I saw some labdogs or political puppets attempting to show their empty interests in mining Diamonds in Taung without any knowledge about Diamond Industry. This is a difficult industry which does not need someone to feel it because of money. This is the industry that need the Man s Heart. Not boys who are sitting in government offices gossiping and dividing leadership structures booth by heir written tongues, butb this need a man who ever lived in the bushes… A True Soldier.
    To all who are busy striving and hustling hard to see Taung Rich from its own minerals, Aluta Continua, because this is our God given Natural Resources and we have to benefit from it All. If there are clever and wise peoples who are hopping to benefit alone into this public things as they are used to do, halaaala, expect the new Taung Boko Harams Founded asap. Help us access our Diamond please.
