At exactly 14:00 this Friday, the explosion of dynamite in the coal mine next to the village  has led to a huge wave of dust in the municipality of Moatize in the province of Tete. The dust covered the sky forming a black cloud. All mealie crops where covered in black dust. The entire village went dark . This dust will cause diseases to the residents of the communities that are close to the mine.
