On 5 February 2024, more than 2360 households from the villages of Bandayi and Mege in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, represented by an individual, filed a complaint against AngloGold Ashanti PLC to the UK NCP. The complaint relates to an incident occurring on 22 October 2021 by security agents allegedly under the instruction of Kibali Goldmines (a joint venture involving AngloGold Ashanti and Barrick Gold (both holding 45% ownership), and a DRC state-owned mining company) involving forced evictions, destruction of dwellings and other private property, deaths, and arrests. The complainants allege failures to comply with the Human Rights and Tax chapters of the OECD Guidelines. The complainants are seeking financial compensation to support the affected families and to assist with their relocation.

The issues raised in this complaint were previously raised by the complainants in a separate complaint filed to the Canadian NCP on 10 May 2022 against Barrick Gold.
