Final stand-off in Kumba relocation of Dingleton residents
A showdown is looming between Kumba Iron Ore and the last remaining residents of Dingleton, which has gradually been abandoned as the mine expands its operations into the area
Cedric Alexander first set eyes on Dingleton in 1975. Back then it was called Sishen town, after the large mine established there by Iscor and which today is run by Anglo American’s Kumba Iron Ore.
"To me, it was the most beautiful town I had ever seen," he says. "It was very clean, tidy."
