    Habari nilipata hivi punde kutoka huko Nyamongo, TARIME, Kuna mapambano kati ya jeshi la polisi na Intruders (raia wanaotaka kuingia kwa nguvu) kwenye mgodi huo.

    Na hadi sasa inasemekana intruders wawili wameuawa kwa risasi na polisi 5 wamejeruhiwa kwa mawe..

    Five killed in Barrick Tanzanian mine attack - POLICE

    * Third attack on mine in past week -police
    * African Barrick aiming to boost Tanzania output

    By Fumbuka Ng'wanakilala
    DAR ES SALAAM, May 17 (Reuters)

    Five people were killed after hundreds of people raided African Barrick Gold's (ABGL.L) North Mara gold mine in Tanzania in the third attack in a week, a senior police officer said on Tuesday.

    The mine, located in Tarime district about 100 km (60 miles) east of Lake Victoria, suspended operations temporarily during the raid to steal gold ore, but resumed production after calm was restored.

    "Between 800 and 1,200 people armed with traditional weapons invaded the mine at around 5 a.m. (0200 GMT) on Monday with the intention of stealing gold ore from one of the crushers," Tarime-Rorya regional police commander, Constantine Massawe, told Reuters by telephone.

    "Police fired warning shots into the air and used tear gas to try to stop the attackers from advancing but they would not heed. Police were forced to use live ammunition to protect themselves. Ten people, including seven police officers, were injured in the incident," he said.

    A spokesman for African Barrick Gold, a unit of the world's largest miner Barrick Gold Corp (ABX.TO), in Tanzania confirmed the attack, but declined further comment.

    Massawe said three suspects injured in the mine invasion were in police custody.

    "There have been two other attacks on the mine over the past one week, but security personnel at the mine, with the help of police officers, managed to keep the invaders at bay," he said.

    North Mara gold mine, which consists of four open pits, has experienced several attacks over the past few years.

    In 2008, some 200 people attacked it and destroyed property worth $7 million, forcing operations at one pit to be halted.

    African Barrick Gold said in December it aimed to build an underground operation beneath existing open pits after finding more gold at the North Mara mine.

    In 2009, North Mara produced some 212,000 ounces of gold at a cash cost of $508 per ounce.

    ABG said it wants to boost output at its Tanzanian operations to one million ounces a year over the next three years.

    The gold miner, which floated in London in March 2010, expects to produce 700,000-760,000 ounces of gold in 2011.

    Wananchi wanaona raslimali za nchi zinaondoka halafu hawafaidiki nazo hivyo wanaona wajitoe muhanga. Serikali ipeleke kikosi haraka ili kupunguza mauaji ya raia. Kikosi hicho kitumie njia mbadala indead of kukimbilia kuua raia. Poleni sana wana Nyamongo kwa madhila yanayowapata!

    Inauma sana kusema kweli. Wameishi karika ardhi hiyo kwa miaka chungu nzima, leo inagundulika kuna dhahabu yenye thamani kubwa sana wanakuja wageni kuchukua utajiri mkubwa kutoka katika ardhi yao na wao kutofaidika kwa lolote lile na huku wakiendelea kuishi katika umaskini wa kutisha.

    Kwa kiasi fulani nashindwa kuwalaumu Barrick moja kwa moja kwa matukio kama haya kwa sababu Barrick wako hapa kibishara na wanalinda maslahi yao na wanahisa wao. Lakini waliowakaribisha (serikali) wal jiiandaa vipi huku nyumbani kabla huyu mgeni hajaja?

    Hivi kweli mtu anaweza kuja nyumbani kwako akala na kunywa then akaamua kuwatwanga makonde watoto wako na wewe unaangalia? Serikali walikubaliana nini na Barrick kuhusu watu wanaoishi jirani na migodi? Kila mwaka utamsikia waziri wa nishati na madini akisema 'tuna mkakati' wa kuwasaidia/kuwainuwa wachimbaji wadogo wadogo! Nini kimefanyika kwenye hilo?

    Siku zote nimekuwa na hisia kuwa viongozi wetu wanatunguzuka, kwamba wanasema jambo moja kwa wananchi lakini wakikutana na hawa wawekezeji (i.e Barrick) wanasema jengine. Kuna uwezekano kabisa kuwa serikali ndio mchawi wa haya matukio.
