Nonhle Mbuthuma is the spokesperson of the Amadiba Crisis Committee of the Xolobeni community, situated on the Wild Coast, in the Eastern Cape. The Xolobeni community’s struggle began early in 1996 when a foreign mining company discovered titanium along the coast. The committee, formed in 2007, is fighting for community land rights and the environment, as well as trying to ensure human rights are not violated in the name of development. So far, the committee has triumphed in two cases against the mining company.
