They are all opencast and they are not far from the community if i can estimate they are 5000 mitre’s away from the community.All the shaking of ground,dust and vibration is affecting all the members of the community from babies, adult and people living with disability they become destab as the results it causes health problem Example.TB, HEART DISEASES, EPILEPSY and more
This blasting happens everyday in the morning and afternoon between 10 am to 4 pm
The community has no power to stop this but the mine must imform the community about blasting time
The mines must also help the community with the health check up ..they must provide them with the mobile clinic like as they do with thier employee’s
