Arising from Manzolwandle Investments’ application to mine coal in an area of approximately 18 000 hectares close to Komatipoort and the Kruger National Park, the agricultural network Saai – representative of family farmers – joined as interested party to oppose this development.
The target area mainly comprises irrigation agriculture in export industries, as well as high-intensity farms that have a large number of workers in service. Acid rain, coal dust, hundreds of trucks destroying roads, an increase in cattle theft, air and water pollution and noise are but single disadvantages and side effects that mining activities would cause for nearby agricultural production.
