A Timber factory at Ngodini in Kabokweni next to Themba hospital, Mpumalanga Nursing College, Bugle Primary School and sorrounded by the community and a plaza is polluting non stop even during the day.
The residents of Kabokweni and the patience of Themba hospital who came looking for help for their health only to add their sickness from the dark smoke coming from the Timber factory
I then interviewed a neighbour who is staying on the fence line of the hospital and another one who is exactly next to the Timber factory and who told me that they have consulted the factory but all goes in vain as politics have an influence on the factory as some are against the closure and will affect families whose relatives work at the factory.
I then advised them to put this issue to all the community members even those who are far as the air has no boundaries. I even gave them contacts of the experts for more information whom can assist in this matter.
