Yesterday it rained so heavily and also a bit of rain today at Mpumalanga Highveld under Emalahleni Vosman area but because of the mining operation the dust is still visible and polluting.Nowonder people are suffering from pollution related diseases.
As a result of air pollution, dust and acid rain are destroying the roofing of the houses around Vosman. The small village is surrounded by mines,the steel roof sheets has turned into a dark brown colour of which is rusting. The roofing is bursting/ breaking whenever is raining, the rain leaks inside their houses which destroys their furniture.
