It I that time of the year where people with sinus and asthma will suffer because of the wind that is blowing in our communities.  This wind caries dust that contains chemicals from the Mine dumps from different mining operations in our area Platinum, and Chrome dumps is in the area not to mention all our roads dust that is paved by the very same soil.

People in our communities mostly suffer the above mentioned sicknesses because of this bad wind that is blowing in this season. We are surrounded by mining operations and it seems our communities are the dump side of this bad soil. (Externalization) this I what communities benefit from the industries operating in our communities.
