Come and hear first hand of life living near a uranium mine by visiting collegue, Reinford Mwangonde who has challenged Perth-based mining company, Paladin Energy's operating procedures in Malawi since before the licence was granted in 2007.
Kayelekera uranium mine was the biggest mining project in Malawi’s history, but has long caused controversy in the Karonga region of northern Malawi. Uranium mining was imposed on the people of Karonga in 2009 from Paladin Energy, now in administration, and people would still prefer it had never come to their country.
“The mine is located in the catchment area of a river that flows directly into Lake Malawi,” said Reinford Mwangonde, Executive Director from Citizens for Justice Malawi , “one of the most pristine freshwater bodies remaining in the world and a vital source of food for the Malawian people.”
This evening will provide a unique insight into a story that continues to generate heartache and headlines today and convey a sense of the Karonga people's experience of imposed uranium mining by a Perth-based company.
We will hear about the cumulative impacts of the Kayelekera uranium mine, and how Paladin has walked away without a clear contingency plan and Malawi has been left with a hole in the ground and contaminated waterways with no means to fix them.
Bar and Snacks Available.
