Police Encouraged To Shoot Machete Wielding Artisanal Miners

The government has said it will soon implement an “eye for an eye philosophy” against illegal artisanal miners who wield machetes against law enforcers.

Said Minister of State for Midlands Affairs, Senator Larry Mavima:

We cannot have a lawless society that terrorises law abiding citizens, it doesn’t matter whether you are an artisanal miner or not.

In this particular case, I want to reiterate that we do not tolerate machete attacks. We do not tolerate violence because there is no need to use force in order to achieve your goals.

Very soon we will be applying for an eye for an eye philosophy or principle. That means that if you have machetes and you meet a law officer, and if they are armed they will retaliate and shoot.

This is because we can allow our young people to become that lawless to the extent that they take the law into their own hands and believe that if he has a machete he is above the law.
