 Molotswaneng is another section of Ga-Makgopa village in Sekhukhune fetakgomo Tubatse municipality where there are illegal chrome mining taking place and operation taking place every day and night.


The operation has being going on for about 3 to 4 months now after it was stopped by police and now its continuing again and safety and health is our main priority cause their trucks are busy day and night making noise and dust.


We feel not safe on the road especially for our children cause there was once an accident of a child being hit by a truck on this same road, now its noise in the night that people can’t even sleep. Trucks loading chrome, the chrome dust from the trucks cause some trucks are not even covered, this is danger go our health from the chrome particles that we breath everyday and we catch on our bodies everyday too.
