The biggest sink hole in the area

Community Alert/ Susan Moraba/ Mpumalanga province/ 16 Novemebr 2016


Coronation community in Emalahleni, no matter how dangerous their life’s may be they keep on erecting more shacks near the dump. The coal dump is washing off to their shacks and sinking even more but the more all this is happening the more shacks are being erected. The biggest sink hole in the area which is growing big and shallow is just about 10m away from the people’s homes which one may wonder how safe they are as no one knows how deep and the direction it sinks to. Despite all this the government has closed its eyes and no longer have a say about the situation as they have said people are not allowed to stay in this area.
