  1. Iyeee…shuwa!!…This is anguish for families imwe. Do you know how it feels to watch your children not going to sku because there is no more income at home? Watching a bag of meal meal going down with no idea where the next one will come from; treating little children to a sudden change in diet due to bankruptcy…and so much more. Is anyone in the PF feeling broken by this bad news like i have felt? And MOPANI has oredy declared intentions to place the company under care and maintainace. Chabipa mwe….Sorry you miners you are not alone in this anguish. We will cry with you
