Community rights bodies Mining Affected Communities United in Action (Macua) and womxn Affected by Mining United in Action (Wamua) on Thursday announced plans to picket at the offices of the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR). This would be to serve notice that, should Minister Gwede Mantashe and the DMR continue to “bully” the community of Xolobeni, Macua would launch a national campaign in support of the community, which would see mining affected communities from across South Africa take to the streets.
