We were taken deep into rural Pondoland to see first hand the effects of the SAPS helicopter glyphosate spraying.
It seems to be so indiscriminate. In this photo, all the bald patches in the background (including the huge one in the bottom of the valley) had a mixture of mielies and dagga until 6 days ago.
The companion veggies were all affected. Villagers in the fields have sore throats and itchy skin and even their cattle and goats have skin lesions. One goat has already died.
If you look closely, all the remaining green is dagga that was missed in a really shoddy operation.
One old man reported being hit twice as he was plowing with oxen. He looked up and could see the pilot laughing.
Incidentally, this whole valley is a water course that eventually flows to the ocean.
