Keleabetswe Pilane (24)

Keleabetswe is passionate about law. “The law is an evolving tool and changes with the times. Therefore, it shall forever remain an essential tool in society until the end of time.” I am from an area which is rich in minerals and where most people are not well educated. I wish to advocate for the protection of the interests and rights of mining communities within my reach. Unfortunately, in most cases, mining communities do not understand the contracts they agree to with mining companies. Therefore, I believe it is my moral obligation to see to it that they understand fundamental aspects in contractual agreements to protect their rights. In essence, I want to ensure that African communities benefit from the mines in their areas.”
