TRC Organises Special Dialogue for Polihali Affected Communities and Stakeholders

The Transformation Resource Centre supported by the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary facilitated a dialogue session in Mokhotlong for Polihali Dam affected communities, the LHDA officials, Natural Resource Cluster and Government. The session interrogated the ceaseless concerns of the affected communities regarding compensation, resettlement, pastures, employment opportunities, and with great focus on water and sanitation rights among others. The Centre organised the session with the aim that the fears and concerns of affected communities are responded to by LHDA and other relevant stakeholders and newly collected concerns are documented and given specific timeframes for redress.  The Centre also made a great effort for the Ministry of Water Affairs, Natural Resource Cluster, Mokhotlong MPs and LHDA to commit to affected communities in the Polihali catchment in enabling access to clean water and sanitation.
