ActionSA Approaches Mpumalanga NPA for Urgent Progress on Lily Mine Judicial Inquest

Our legal team has written to the Director of Public Prosecutions in Mpumalanga, Ms. Nkebe Rebecca Kanyane, for an urgent update on the judicial inquest into the Lily Mine tragedy.

The launch of the inquest began on 30 June 2021; over a year later there is no resolution, answer, or justice for the aggrieved families.

The collapse of the container with Yvonne Mnisi, Solomon Nyirenda, and Pretty Nkambule trapped inside now established to be a result of the negligence of the management of Vantage Goldfields Proprietary Limited require urgent action and those responsible to be held accountable.

ActionSA is uncompromising about the fact that the container can and must be retrieved and that their families be afforded the opportunity to find closure.

We await an urgent response from the Mpumalanga Director of Public Prosecutions and reserve all of subsequent legal options to have this matter resolved.
