Description

Cobalt is an essential component for things like electric cars and rechargeable batteries. And cobalt mining in the Democratic Republic of Congo is fuelling the planet’s green revolution - but at a heavy price. In the copper belt around the city of Kolwezi, Africa Correspondent Jamal Osman tracks down the men who are risking their lives to work the mines, and the families living with the life changing consequences of these risks. 

In this podcast, Jamal tells Krishnan Guru-Murthy about his recent trip to the DRC for Unreported World, and what he found there.
