NAME: TIMOTHY MAKAU
DATE: 14th DECEMBER 2017
I Timothy Makau a miner at Mwatate sub-county, I have been in the mining industry for over 20 years. I am grateful for the efforts and the assistance which NCCK has offered for the last two years. In fact, I was not aware of the Mining Act 2016 before NCCK enlightened me.
Through forums and capacity building programmes which NCCK has facilitated, I got to know about the New Mining Act as an Artisanal miner.
I have been able to meet different miners from different groups through these forums. My group has benefited a lot from these forums for they are educated about this new Mining Act.
As a group, we are facing a great challenge in mining due to lack of machines.
I urge NCCK to keep on educating us and to help use with machineries if possible.
