The suspects will appear in court again on 13th February this year for closure of miscellaneous order and take plea.

Meanwhile, Illegal Chinese gold miners have been ordered by a Migori court to vacate Macalder Mines within Nyatike Sub County.

High Court Judge George Ong’ondo sitting at the Migori High Court further directed that the Chinese remove all the machines from the mineral rich Macalder mines and stop undertaking any mining activity within Nyatike constituency.

While giving a ruling on a petition filed at the Environment and Lands Court by Nyatike legislator Tom Odege in 2017, the Judge ruled that the Chinese miners had illegally occupied the mines.


The Judge however declined to uphold the order seeking to compensate the locals through public projects in Nyatike constituency as sought by their MP.
