A video circulating on social media of a gold buyer heavily assaulting what seems to be his worker has gone viral.
The video begins with the shirtless buyer instructing his colleague to pour water onto the victim (with a hose pipe) who has been instructed to lay face down. The buyer then takes the running horsepipe and starts assaulting the victim who cries in pain facing down. The buyer is quickly joined by a colleague with a long stick who inflicts even more damage with no mercy making the grownman wail in pain.
Violence is rife in the Artisanal and Small-scale mining sector in Zimbabwe something the President has committed to quickly end. It remains to be seen if the authorities take action against this buyer as a way to send a message as most boast of being untouchable.
