Community Alerts/ Promise Mabilo/Empumelelweni-Mpumalanga/27 July 2017

One of our member VL Mabaso was visiting KZN then they visited communities which are surrounded by a new mine called Shanduka and they want to relocate them with their graves and residents are refusing especially the elderly residents.

Vosman residents are now scared after we spoke to them about the blasting that take place anytime we did tell them to take this serious because is their rights to do so as the blasting is damaging their houses they also asked that we must come to open their eyes (raise awareness with information) not coming once is not enough for them as they thought it is not for them to fight as they used to report to government officials about the cracks .We also told them to note time when the blasting takes place and pictures to use as proof and they must know the name of the mine, and they may phone the green scorpion too.
