The projects represent over R94-million of investment from Impala Rustenburg, several years of work and the creation of 714 jobs through construction and development. They include three road upgrades, 15 offices, a multipurpose centre, a community hall, a community centre, a sports facility and a water scheme upgrade. Speaking at the handover of the multipurpose centre in the Kanana Village, Impala Rustenburg CEO Mark Munroe highlighted that the projects were aligned to the company’s commitment to make a difference in the communities in which it operated. The projects form part of Impala’s first and second generation SLP undertaking. The facilities were designed with input from the communities and aim to engage citizens. Munroe said the company would also provide learnerships and programmes, in addition to the infrastructure it has provided. Moreover, the company would continue to provide more support and other infrastructure to communities in the years to come.
