Several roads leading into Kagiso, west of Johannesburg, have been blocked off this morning due to a community protest against illegal mining in the area.

The blockage follows the gang rape of eight women, who were part of a production crew, shooting a music video. They were working on site when the attack took place on Thursday last week, near a mine dump in Krugersdorp.

The community of Kagiso township is calling on government to bring in the army to put an end to illegal mining in the West Rand

The police spokesperson, Noxolo Kweza said that “Currently, the situation is calm and the police are busy monitoring. Police members from the station, together, with members from POPS, are monitoring the situation.”
