Anglo American executive director Khanyisile Kweyama has been elected vice president of the Chamber of Mines of South Africa, following the organisation’s 122nd annual general meeting held at the Johannesburg Country Club on 6 November 2012.


Kweyama replaces AngloGold Ashanti CEO Mark Cutifani, who has been appointed the president of the Chamber of Mines, following the end of Dr Xolani Mkhwanazi’s term of office.  Optimum Colliery chief executive Mike Teke stays on as Vice President.


Bheki Sibiya, chief executive of the Chamber of Mines expressed confidence that Kweyama will make a real difference in her new role.


“Our industry is going through many challenges which require a diversity of insights and strategies. It is my belief that Khanyisile’s election will enhance the diversity and her contribution will add great value to the Chamber of Mines and its members, as we move forward to find solutions that would benefit the industry, its employees and stakeholders. I look forward to working with her.”


Kweyama brings to the position years of leadership experience, having served on the Executive Committee of Anglo American’s Platinum business since 2011, and having previously held executive positions at Barloworld, Altech and BMW South Africa.


Further to this, Kweyama has extensive experience in transformation issues, as she is a member of the Commission for Employment Equity (CEE), a Section 9 body established to advice the Minister of Labour on Employment Equity.


“I am immensely proud to have been appointed to this critically important position, which has the capacity to create real and tangible change within the South African mining industry. In line with the core philosophy of Anglo American, I look forward to collaborating closely with other members of the Chamber of Mines, in order to create a sustainable difference within the industry, and best serve the interests of all stakeholders,” concluded Kweyama
