The battle for titanium on SA's Wild Coast

Tensions have escalated in the battle to stop an Australian company from mining titanium on the Xolobeni sand dunes.

CAPE TOWN - The Amadiba Crisis Committee (ACC) and Wild Coast residents have been battling for years to stop an Australian mining company from mining titanium on the Xolobeni sand dunes.

Tensions escalated last week after the murder of a prominent Eastern Cape anti-mining activist.

Sikhosiphi 'Bazooka' Rhadebe was murdered at him home in Bizana near Port St Johns by men who posed as police officers.
