mosebenzizwaneFin24 reports that Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane on Friday defended the controversially revised Mining Charter as the cornerstone of radical economic transformation.  

Addressing a Black Business Council’s business breakfast, he described the Charter as a decisive and deliberate tool by government to improve the lives of the majority of South Africans.  He went on to say:  "The 2017 Mining Charter gives practical expression to radical economic transformation.  It is a decisive and deliberate action by government.  It classically defines the transformation we need."  The minister dismissed concerns that the Charter was not achievable and said it would bring about much-needed change.  Zwane will defend the Charter in court next month against the Chamber of Mines, which has asked the court to set it aside.
