While the Board of Trustees is responsible for governing the Trust, there is broad acknowledgement that other stakeholders have a keen and vested interest in the work of the Trust and in the fulfilment of its mandate. As such, the Trust Advisory Committee was established to give key stakeholders the opportunity to advise, give input, and raise concerns with the Board of Trustees.

According to the Trust Deed, the Tshiamiso Trust is governed by a board of seven trustees. Of these, three have been nominated by the companies, two by the claimants’ attorneys, one by government and a consensus trustee has been be nominated by the mining companies and the claimants’ attorneys jointly. The Trust and the seven nominated trustees were all registered by the office of the Master of the High Court by 6 February 2020 and is expected to be functional for at least the next 12 years.
