In a bid to protect its South African workers from anti-immigrant attacks in Mozambique, Kenmare Resources, which is listed in London and Ireland, has sent back home 62 workers at its titanium mine in Mozambique.
Over the past 10 days, about seven people, including foreigners and South Africans, have been murdered in an upsurge of anti-immigrant attacks that started at the port city of Durban. The attacks later mushroomed to Johannesburg with police guarding problematic locations in South Africa’s biggest city.
Kenmare’s operations at its Moma Mine located on the north east coast of Mozambique would continue without any major trouble if the situation is resolved “in the near future,” according to Reuters.(VENTURES AFRICA)[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10″]
