Concerned Matjobas

SHONGOANE — The Matjoba Young Women’s Group recently held a meeting during which environmental issues were discussed.

The impact of huge coal projects such as coal mines and coal-fired power stations were discussed. A trip to Botswana is being planned to allow representatives to compare issues with local communities in Botswana. The Waterberg coal field extends into Botswana and a lot of coal projects are planned for that area as well.

The group also discussed issues regarding the proposed tariffs increase by Eskom. A letter was drafted and sent to NERSA to voice the groups’ objections.
