Zama Zamas Boys Have Been Arrested Again, See The Number Of Illigal Foreigners Among Them

Following the ongoing operation in some parts of the country, another township shutdown have been done as hawks arrested 48 illegal miners in Sekhukhune and Limpopo operating in different mining communities. The audacity to come back and continue the illegal work even after being raided by residents needs to be studied.

He alleged Zamazamas boys keep terrorising the peace of the nation by stealing the natural resources meant for everyone. They operate with different mining machines such including heavy-duty vehicles for efficiency, but the enforcement agencies sized it all during the arrest.

The arrest took place communities blessed with mineral resources such as chrome, platinum, and ore. The communities includes Waterberg districts in Limpopo, Atok, Northam and Apel in Sekhukhune. Sources also revealed that all arrested Zamazamas boys are not illegal foreigner nationals as expected. Out of the 48 people, 38 are Illegal foreigners while the identity of the 10 wasn't disclosed.

The way those Zamazamas boys returned to the mining shafts after the unrest last week raised many questions. Community members who take out their time to hunt for them are now suspecting that enforcement agencies have hands in their return.

According to the chairperson of Sekhukhune community mining forum, Elton Thobejane, the illegal mining syndicates exploit the people' precarious economic circumstances. Also, the Hawks spokesperson, Matimba Maluleke, claims that operations would be carried out in the affected areas to hunt down on the Zamazamas boys at all cost.

However, people on facebook could hesitate to comment to the case. Below are screenshots of people's reactions on the post:

@Phela, The fact is Zama zama are working with someone in high position in the government. If they are crus of destroying zama zamas they must get who bought their minerals.

@Galebo, Zama zamas must tell the constitutional court what are they doing with those minerals, real zama zamas will be exposed.

@Mogale, The arrests are made, but the legislation is lenient on them, cause in a period of six months they would be free and probably commenced with their Zama Zaming duties.
