Blasting problem from Sefateng mine

Eunice/Sekhune Limpopo/October2017
Blasting from the mine of Sefateng (Waterkop) causes damages to the houses which are nearby to the mine. One of the houses which has cracked windows is owned by Stokie Sekgobela. But the is nowhere that she can lodge complaints.When they go to the mine trying to lodge complaints they are told that they should sign forms which the mine needs to apply for a permit to blast within 500m houses.The mine told the affected households that they should not talk to them until they sign those forms.
