The families of three miners trapped underground when part of a lily mine collapsed six years ago handed a memorandum after a peaceful march to a spokesman for Prime Minister Mpumalanga Refilva Mtveni-Tipani.

They accused both provincial and national governments of not doing enough to help bring back the remains of their loved ones.

In 2016, the mine swallowed a container with three workers reportedly.

The march was also attended by some former mine workers and some ActionSA executives.

Harry Mazibuka, who spoke on behalf of families and former workers, said: “Our government is the regulator in the industry, that is the number one. The minister in charge of the industry said on national television that they, as the government, had nothing to do with the private sector.

He says: “Last week the same minister had Indaba who told investors to invest in this good industry and when they invest when we are in this mess, they are nowhere to be found as a government. Does that make sense? These are the questions, do we have a government? ”

Camp on the street

The families of those killed in the lily mine disaster are located near a mine near Barbertan. They set up camp there for 1,000 days, trying to force the government and Vantage Goldfields to return the bodies of their loved ones.

Former workers also called for the removal of a practicing lifeguard from the mine.
