Kendal is a farming area with small farmers near Phola/ Ogies in Mpumalanga. They have crops and livestock, their livestock eat in the fields because the grass is beautiful for them to feed there, now the problem is the Ash dump mountain near them. The ash dump is from Kendal power station and its growing everyday and killing the grass and other things. when its windy the dust is unbearable around the people in communities. People from the powerstation they don’t care they only think about the production only. The livestock now have a limited space to graze and the farmers are not able to plant beacause their land is taken by this Ash dump of Mountain.
