Modern Slavery by Havard Bjelland
In the Karonga district of Malawi, work in the mines is a matter of life and death. Every night, Pililan Mzuma prays to survive the next day.. The miners work hard over long days for bad salaries, sometimes waiting months for the money. Without necessary protective gear the conditions are dangerous for the workers. Gresswell Kayange was in the mine in 2019 when big stones fell over him. He was paralysed and is still waiting for compensation. When the political leaders of the world sat down in Glasgow to “phase out” coal, Layson Ngwira and his colleagues kept working calmly in Karonga.
