David called 702's Xolani Gwala to talk about the mine blasting that has been going on in the Soweto areas like Dobsonville and Meadowlands for decades. He says it causes the walls of residents homes to crack.
He says the sulpher from the mines makes its way into every nook and cranny of their homes. It is affecting their health and residents are most concerned about raising children in this hazardous environment.
We are inhaling all the dust...we have been complaining about this thing and nothing is done.— David from Dobsonville, caller
David says people living in the area's faeces are the same colour as the yellow sulpher found in the mines.
