The identified mining sites in Boksburg have also recently seen a series of deadly shootings, believed to be violent turf wars between rival zama zama gangs.

scene, Gauteng Premier Panyaza Lesufi called on law enforcement officials to come up with improved strategies to tackle illegal mining activities in the province.

He said the country is using outdated law enforcement mechanisms in a new era that needs new forms of law enforcement. “This thing of illegal mining is completely out of control. Zama zamas are keeping the country under siege, particularly in Gauteng. We must overhaul our law enforcement response. “I am calling for a completely new strategy in confronting this crime wave. A strategy that is well-resourced and the capability of our law enforcement that is at a higher level, and the need to respond in a manner that is as if we are in a war zone.”
