Conflict between Illegal Miners and KEM-JV Ramps Up

Illegal miners marched to the Transvaal Road Police Station and the Kimberley Magistrate’s Court yesterday morning after the arrest of two of their leaders on Tuesday .  Lucky Seekoei, the chairperson of the Kimberley Artisanal Mine Workers, and his co accused Tebogo Taku face charges or trespassing and was released after bail of R2000 was granted.

After his release Lucky Seekoei addressed hundreds of illegal miners protesting in the area.  Seekoei said that the police can no longer be trusted and accused the police of being in collusion with KEM-JV.

KEM-JV spokesperson, Gert Klopper, stated yesterday that several charges were laid against illegal minders after the latest protest actions.  According to Klopper protesters attacked a  truck on Tuesday,  smashed the windows and punctured the tires.  A patrol vehicle was also pelted with bricks on Wednesday, damaging the vehicle and injuring an employee.  Various KEM-JV fences was cut and a guardhouse was torched.
