At that time, an Australian mining company named mintails went into bankruptcy and liquidation, leaving more than 1700 hectares of waste dumps and open-pit mines. Later, this group of”Zama zamas” illegal miners group occupied this land and began to compete for the lucrative residual gold in the underground vein, often breaking out in firefight.

“It feels like we are living in another world, as if we are living in a civil war.” An unnamed man said in an interview that he lived in a community 2 kilometers away from the abandoned mine. He was always worried about the safety of his family and neighbors. These”Zama zamas” have been engaged in violent activities in the local area for nearly 10 years.

“Since around 2013, illegal miners have started mining here. When we contacted the police, they said they were too afraid to intervene.” The man said that he often saw wrapped bodies on the roadside, which showed that there must be more bodies in the mine.”These ‘Zama zamas’ are not afraid, they do not hide, and they walk around this area unscrupulously.”

“During the COVID-19, the situation became worse. At that time, our homes were closed and we often heard gunshots.” The man said he said that he said the bad rape and robbery was a statement of the illegal miners, indicating that they were not afraid of government law enforcement departments.

Another resident named nicolene tromp also said:”this is normal, this is what we experience every day… We can’t walk freely on our own streets. The mayor hasn’t taken any measures here, the police can’t do anything, and we can’t go to the police.”
