Interview with residents of Hippopools


The following link is a video interview carried out with residents of Hippopools, a rural settlement near to Chingola. It was badly affected by the industrial polltion that came from KCM in October 2006. The only source of drinking water in the village is the Kafue river (shown at the end of the clip). The clip is not great quality so it can be downloaded. It has not been edited, and you are free to use it as you wish in geography lessons. If anybody would like a better copy please leave a message on this site.
