SANEF Slams Attack on Journalists

SANEF condemned the attack on two journalists from The Citizen newspaper, as well as on activists, after the funeral of a slain anti-mining activist.

The South African National Editor’s Forum (SANEF) has condemned the attack on two journalists from The Citizen newspaper, as well as on activists, after the funeral of slain anti-mining activist, Sikhosiphi ‘Bazooka’ Rhadebe.

Two of The Citizen’s journalists and two anti-mining activists were beaten at the funeral of Rhadebe on the Eastern Cape’s Wild Coast at a remote village near Mbizana on Saturday, 2 April 2016.

Rhadebe died in a hail of bullets two weeks ago when he was attacked by hitmen, apparently for his continued resistance to

Australian mining company Mineral Resources Limited (MRL) wanting to mine the titanium-rich sand dunes near his home village of Xolobeni.
