JOHANNESBURG – A large police contingent has raided parts of Krugersdorp where Gauteng Police Commissioner Elias Mawela has been leading a sting operation on Wednesday.

The area has drawn attention following the gang rape of eight women who were shooting a video at an unused mine dump last Thursday.

The attack was allegedly carried out by so-called Zama Zamas.

A large police contingent made up of the K9 unit, Tactical Response Team and others descended on Krugersdorp’s West Village.

While one group of officers went down a mine shaft with Mawela, others acted on intelligence and tip-offs raiding specific houses.

Officers have also been using a drone for a clearer sense of the situation on the ground.

Equipment used for illegal mining has been collected by police, with several men arrested in connection with illegal mining and illegal immigration.
