I met a lady who worked at crown mine offices in shaft 17 next to Diepkloof. She alluded that many of those who worked at the dump many have or have had TB; feet problems and induction were done at crown mine. She suffers from back bone; her kids have eye problems. She worked there for years and when one has many sick notes then he/she is dismissed because of sickness.

She alluded that even the dust mask’s given to workers don’t do any difference, she said they were told to drink milk daily, but the mine did not supply that milk. The salary was a joke and she & others were later retrenched because of their situation
