 Cows dying due to drinking contaminated water from Twickenham mine dam that was realised last week at Ga-Makgopa village in Sekhukhune Limpopo fetakgomo Tubatse municipality. Cows has no place to drink water only using the stream that is dry and the little water they  can get is contaminated cause of  the mine dam that has released water last week said to be cleaning the dam and the dirty water running to the only stream our livestock drink water from.


One cow was left to die during the cause of last week, it couldn’t even stand to walk near the Twickenham shaft where same water from the dam that was realised flow to the stream near the road and cows drink that water and dies, also those drinking in the main stream where also in danger. people’s livestock are at risk and mine need to look at that problem from a different angle, need to consider  people’s livestock before releasing their water.
