EMalahleni (The city of coal) talking to neighbours on how are we going to survive as our city is too reluctant to coal what will happen if the coal mines goes down and no longer mining of coal.
It seems we are not ready at all to adapt to the situation and is now

We see that there will be more changes and we have to go back to farming and do things on our own to survive.

The big question is are we going to have land to do that as mine has made lot of damages man-made mountains and now they are gone.

We feel that our government becomes happy for us to be beggars or wait for handouts. It will be very difficult to survive for us really we don’t see anything that will make change at this stage.
