When a Community Plan Comes Together


On 1 September 2012 Chief Kgosi Petrus Maroga from the Magimeng Village near Samancor Eastern Chrome Mines (ECM), close to Steelpoort in Mpumalanga Province, received a “Thorburn Karretjie” – a two wheel hand pull or push cart. The aim with the cart was to transport water canisters (up to 15) instead of using a wheel barrow or to use it as a utility transporting pull or push cart. For months no movement of the “Thorburn Karretjie” was seen in the area and questions were raised if it was even used at all?

On 12 March it was spotted! On the road between ECM Doornbosch Mine and Ribacross. A Car Wash business started in Magimeng Village and the “Thorburn Karretjie” is used to transport the cleaning goods and machines to the car wash bays. Catherine Lekwadi is the owner of the Makola’s Car Wash business. Thorburn Security Solutions MD, Dolf Scheepers, drove past Makola’s Car Wash, spotted the “Thorburn Karretjie”, made a u-turn, investigated and then offered support for the business to Catherine Lekwadi. He advised that in addition to the rental phones at the car wash, she could also offer grilled chicken or meat, pap, grilled mealies and cold drinks to diversify her business. Thorburn will offer her some assistance in developing her enterprise further.

Thorburn Security Solutions launched a second “Thorburn Karretjie” in the Sekhukhune Area on 3 March 2013 at their Annual Community Golf Day at Tubatse Chrome Club and is about to launch it at a cleaning and gardening service at Tubatse Chrome Plant.

The Thorburn idea with the cart (“Thorburn Karretjie”) project is to train locals to manufacture the carts, design multipurpose and a variety of carts and then to encourage businesses to buy these carts and distribute them in the communities.
