MIne blast shatter office windows in Nkana West

Belinda/Nkana West Kitwe/25/05/17

Our office close to the site had windows broken. It is a sorry site.

The office is less than 200m away from the dump site. The office belongs to Ecoview. We had people  in the office at the time the incident happened. We didn’t not have any notice prior to the blasting not was there any information given at the time of blasting. We have a number of windows broken. We have also noted some cracks on the building. It should be noted that that is a residential area and at the time of blasting We noted children around.after the blast,we had a lot of dust and fumes. Not sure the health repurcutions this may have especially  on the children. I should be able to get photos tomorrow  morning.
