Six suspects accused of torching a camping site for Lily Mine workers and families of three people trapped underground in Low’s Creek near Barberton in Mpumalanga are expected to appear in the Low’s Creek Periodical Court.
Kaizer Gwebu and five others are accused of being part of a group that torched the camping site for workers and families of the three mineworkers whose remains trapped underground.
The group has been camping outside the mine for more than two years hoping for justice for their loved ones.
It is alleged that a group of people attacked the families and torched their erected tents earlier this year.
The suspects who were arrested, are currently out on bail.
Lily Mine was closed after part of it collapsed five years ago leaving Solomon Nyirenda, Yvonne, Mnisi and Pretty Yende trapped underground.
