The Minerals Council South Africa has condemned the ongoing acts of violence, criminal activity, serious threats to security and failures by law enforcement agencies to perform their constitutional mandate to uphold the rule of law and order that are impacting on mining companies with operations in the Richards Bay area, and elsewhere in the country. Continued acts of lawlessness, including blockages of roads, burning of equipment and intimidation of staff at mining operations are “not only unacceptable and damaging to the country’s reputation as an investment destination, but also impact the lives and livelihoods of mining employees, their families and surrounding communities,” the council stressed in a statement on June 30.
