Vice President Ronnie Brunswijk disputes any responsibility for the removal of a group of prospectors from the Klein Saramaca neighborhood, which is a component of the Matawai neighborhood. Social media users have been sharing pictures of the strong arm demolishing all the local settlements and telling gold hunters to get out for a few days now.
It would have been indicated that the vice president is the client. It has even been stated that the government official is interested in the place. Brunswijk, who has been staying inland for days in the village of Sangamasusa in Upper Marowijne, says he is shocked by the messages and video in which his name is mentioned without reason. The second man in the country states that he has been in the interior for several days due to a death.
He regrets the incident and the fact that he is involved in this. “They lie about me. I don’t know exactly anything about it. I ask you not to mention my name in this.” The politician knows from which source the allegations come. “I am the last person who will remove people who are looking for a daily bread while not bothering anyone,” Brunswijk said.
Like the government official, Upper Saramacca District Commissioner Walter Bojanski is also unaware of who ordered the eviction of the gold miners.
