Meanwhile, Norton legislator (Independent), Temba Mliswa has posted a video on Twitter accusing State Security minister, Owen Ncube, of unleashing terror in the mining sector. Said Mliswa:
This is from G’n’P Mine run by Mudha using his nephew Energy Dha Ncube. Such callous things happen & when sanctions are put people complain. They are addicted to gold. I challenge the ZRP to investigate& arrest these people. We must be able to protect the innocent. See video below for more details.
