Quotes

According to her, most times, before the commission gave licences to women, "our concessions would have been taken over by illegal miners."
"Women handle household finances on a daily basis and with support and guidance can also manage resources to succeed in mining, hence they should be given create opportunity to acquire concessions" she said
"South Africa and the DRC need to do more to improve cooperation in the field of economic development in order to achieve their shared vision of 2030 where unemployment, poverty and inequality will be forgotten nightmares. This calls for a greater need to industrialise our economies by utilising the natural and ecological resources, skills, technologies, and other development partnerships that we have. The economic report on Africa 2014 which was released by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) says that industrialisation is key for Africa to foster structural transformation and improve in standards of living. Yet industrialisation has remained elusive with an embryonic manufacturing sector, low productivity and marginal participation in domestic and international market" said Maswanganye quoting the UNECA report
...and decency which defines Africa's ubuntu philosophy - of community solidarity, care and responsibility that seeks expression in the phrase, "I am, because we are; and since we are, therefore I am"
