The charcoal house was immediately destroyed by the authorities.
As reported by our correspondent Denis Herrmann, from the Nouvelles de Mayotte, a 28m3 coal mine was discovered in the vicinity of Dzoumogné by the DAAF (Direction Départementale de l’Alimentation, de l’Agriculture et de la Forêt) with the backing of the Gendarmerie. As this practice is strictly prohibited, the stock was seized and… burned!
If one can question the purpose of the intervention (to destroy a stock that will have to be found somewhere since it meets a demand), it is nevertheless necessary to denounce these illegal practices, which are sources of climatic and hydraulic disturbances. Forests enable soil erosion and water flow towards the lagoon to be minimized, the objective being the preservation of water resources and soil stability.
