The atrocities of illegal miners popularly known as Zama-zamas seems not to be ending anytime soon despite the action of South African law enforcement agents to restore rule of law following the Krugersdorp gang-rape incident.
We would recall that few weeks ago the community of Krugersdorp was thrown into deep mourning after illegal miners raped about eight South African girls who visited an abandon mine in the area to shoot music video.
The incident raised so much tension to the extent that residents of Kagiso went on rampage to dismantle Zama-zama hideout and to kick them out of the country.
However, emerging report reveal that a Polokwane farmer who bears the name Gideon Thobakgale has cried out for help after his farm was invaded by Zama-zamas earlier today. The hoodlums stormed Gideon's farm and threatened to kill him if he show any form of resistance.
They proceeded to digging up his land in search of raw gold. The livestock farmer says he fear for his life after the incident as it wasn't clear if the criminals intend to return back again.
This was contained in a statement released by SAfm news on Twitter:
"A Polokwane farmer, in Limpopo, says he fears for his life after his farm was invaded by illegal miners or zama zamas. Gideon Thobakgale, who is a livestock farmer, says he is threatened by the illegal miners who started digging for gold on his farm".
