DIRTY AIR FROM SUGAR CANE

PLACE: BLOCK C NAAS
MUNICIPALITY: NKOMAZI LOCAL MUNICIPALITY
The sugar mill plant at block C Naas is become a thread to the people’s living near it
The residents of Block C Naas and the neighbouring communities have started feeling it as the sugar compony is producing dark cloud of smoke in their sugar plant when manufacturing the sugar and during the harvesting time .
An old school friend named Joseph (not his real name ) said “During havesting time the farmers burn the sugar came that’s when the dark cloud and black small peaces of sugar cane came to our houses also the plant is scaring us with the dark smoke from the tall chimneys “
The community members went to the offices but some community members threatened the others meaning like in coal where there are structures that protects the compony .The division the mine brings to the community members also the dugar compony brought to the community of Nkomazi.
I’m afraid the sicknesses brought by coal mines also the sugar company brings to the community and they have not yet discovered it cause when you pass there you can here a bad smell .
