The four employees kidnapped in March while working at dual-listed Canadian gold mining company Banro’s Namoya gold mine, in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, have been released after a “long and difficult ordeal”. The company on Monday announced the safe return of its employees, three Congolese and a French national, who were kidnapped, along with a fifth employee, a Tanzanian who had been later freed, allegedly for ransom.
