The Mantarianna community cannot say anything in public regarding the environment which is harmful to their lives

. The community stays in close proximity to the Shiva Uranium mine processing plant. The radiation levels are too high in this area. Blasting problems which also affect the Rietkuil community hit this community very hard. Community members feel powerless, when blasting takes place they stay outside their houses because they fear they may fall while inside. For the mine, business is as usual because the community is powerless. The Klerksdorp monitors are spending time in this community doing thorough investigations regarding the community problems resulting from mining activity.
