Mine blasting




The mines that are in a row are chip and changing when it comes to blasting as if they are competing by blasting without any notification to the nearby communities.


All this is happening at Vosman where the mining activity took years ago and was left rehabilitated.


This happens everyday and three time or four times a day some mines have the mining rights certificate and some don’t have.


As their blast everyday the nearby communities are the most affected especially the infants as they grow in fear of the blasting. The pregnant woman get prematured babes or miscarriages .sometimes babies are born with respiratory diseases.


Even if some clean their houses it becomes a waste cause once blasted it becomes dirty again


The enforcement of the law must be prioritized at all times by the government and the law enforcers
