South Africans Wielding Machetes Attack Illegal Miners over Gang Rape


South African President Cyril Ramaphosa on Friday condemned acts of “mob justice” perpetrated by South Africans against illegal miners this week in response to the brutal gang rape of eight women by suspected illegal miners last week at an abandoned mine near Krugersdorp, South Africa, eNews Channel Africa (eNCA) reported.

“Today, we also saw mob justice being played out,” Ramaphosa acknowledged during a televised speech at South Africa’s Presidential Social Sector summit in Boksburg on August 5.

“People, because of their anger, going out to confront a number of people, and there being mob justice,” eNCA quoted Ramaphosa as saying.

The president referred to mob violence against members of illegal mining camps in Krugersdorp starting on August 4 that continued through August 5.
