More than 20 former BCL employees have committed suicide after losing their jobs late last year.
Botswana Mine Workers Union, Secretary General, Mbiganyi Ramokate told opposition activists in Palapye that the former miners decided to commit suicide because they were never given counseling prior to losing their jobs.
Ramokate further said the statistics of the former miners who commit suicide will continue to increase.
