JOHANNESBURG (miningweekly.com) – Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) has claimed that mine security and South African Police Service (SAPS) personnel had escorted armed members of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) at the Zondereinde platinum mine, in Limpopo, on Monday, and that this resulted in the death of an AMCU member. Union president Joseph Mathunjwa on Thursday told media during a briefing in Sandton that AMCU members had been advised by mine security not to proceed for duty on Monday morning but to rather meet at the designated area to await the outcome of a management meeting.
