NORTH MARA MINE WORKERS ARRAIGNED OVER GOLD THEFT


By Mara Online News reporter,
Eight men including two North Mara Gold Mine workers were on Wednesday brought before Tarime district court and charged with five different counts, including economic sabotage and money laundering.
The suspects are accused of illegally entering the gold mine pit and stealing gold sand valued at over 200 million Tanzania shillings between September 22 -25 this year.
 Two of the suspects have been working at the gold mine, one as CCTV camera expert and one as a truck operator.
In a related development, Deputy Minister for Minerals Stanslaus Nyongo has warned that the government will not sit down and watch while theft continues at one of the country’s largest gold mine.
“This is a syndicate and we are all out to dismantle it. Those stealing gold from the North Mara gold mine must stop henceforth, “the Deputy Minister told journalists in Tarime on Wednesday evening.
