MORE than 60 people have been arrested in connection with the shooting incident that occurred in a long-running gold mine ownership wrangle between banker Mr Patterson Timba and businessman Mr Jameson Rushwaya.

One person was shot dead while two others were seriously injured in Kadoma on Saturday while several other people sustained bruises all over their bodies during the brawl, which pitted those sympathetic to Mr Timba against Mr Rushwaya's supporters. Seven people were then arrested over the violence that occurred at Glencairn Mine.

Sources close to the investigations yesterday said more than 60 people have so far been arrested in connection with the murder and attempted murder cases. Some of them were arrested at the scene of the incident, Kadoma Hospital while others were picked at their respective homes in Rimuka. Police are still continuing with their investigations.
