An angry West Village community in Krugersdorp, west of Johannesburg, says the country’s leadership has failed.

Police Minister Bheki Chele is organizing an Imbizo in the area following the gang-rape of eight women allegedly by illegal miners last week.

This prompted members of the community to go on the rampage, setting fire to property they believed was being used by illegal miners.

One of the residents, Nicolene Trom, says they are tired of all the talk and no action.

“This is not the first time the minister hears people. It seems when they say Imbizo they think we as a community are being cheated. South Africa has become a breeding ground for criminals because the people in office have forgotten that they serve the people.’

In the video below, some community members voice their grievances:

National Police Commissioner General Fani Masemola, Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi as well as senior officials from the Department of Mineral Resources are at West Village in Krugersdorp to meet the needs of the police.
