Community Alerts/Elton Thobejane/Limpopo/24 September 2016


Since the mining operations increased in the region of Sekhukhune, especially at Dilokong eastern limp, the level of air pollution has gone up and burning of mountains is becoming a trend. it is really surprising that even during the summer season mountains are still burning.

The quality of air we are breathing is becoming unhealthy day by day. The furnace at Tubatse Samancor is creating so much dust while at the same time emitting caborn way above the threshold contributing to climate change and clobal warming.

We witnessed white smoke all over the town of Tubatse and the neighboring villages in the early hours of the morning and I believe this is happening quiet often.
