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.
