The African National Congress (ANC) has vowed to highlight and address challenges posed by illegal miners also known as zama zamas.

The ANC will be staging a protest at the Krugersdorp Magistrate’s Court west of Johannesburg on Wednesday morning.

The party is calling for illegal mines to be shut down following the arrest of more than 80 people who are allegedly illegal miners.

They were arrested during a police operation following the gang rape of eight women at an abandoned mine in the Krugersdorp area.
