Khumbizile Nkisimane worked in a gold mine for 19 years before leaving when a medical exam showed he had TB. South African Gold miners are particularly vulnerable to contracting TB because of the small, poorly ventilated work conditions, high rates of TB and high rates of silicosis, a lung disease often found in miners that increases the chance of catching TB.
