Mfidikoe village


26 November 2020

The community of Mfidikoe have been raising the issue of emissions for past 2 years on today we saw environmental students from university of North West flocking our village with big machines to survey air quality around the village. The community environmental activist intervened to understand what exactly are they doing, they explained that they were sent by novo institute and Anglo American to study how So2 emissions are affecting and the c and environment.

The community environmentalist who explained to the NWU students that what they’re doing is right but where are the environmental CBO’s or environmental activists to assist with how they should survey the air quality, they claimed to let the community meet the professor who is leading the surveys.
