No safety to our children in Ikemeleng.

Every time after a rain our children go to the river and play inside the water, they really enjoy the water. This river passes through our village. Sibanye also opens their dam whereby we don’t know this water has chemical or not because mine doesn’t care about any impact they cause to our community. Even our leaders don’t care. So the community don’t have the power to approach Sibanye and tell them to stop all they do to the community. Our children always play in the water. In Ikemeleng is like we don’t have a councillor to take responsibility for everything that is making damage to her ward. Everyone must have plans of how to protect your family from getting impact by these two mine. Years ago our children in the community were affected by sickness was caused by playing in the water meaning was chemical in the river. The community need to take action about this mine so our children can be safe.
