mosebenzizwaneTMG Digital reports that trade union federation Cosatu took aim at Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane on Wednesday, accusing him of "nationalistic attitudes" towards mine workers trapped in a Langlaagte shaft.  

"We are worried that the minister is not really committed to rescuing these miners because he keeps emphasising the fact that they are allegedly foreigners," Cosatu said in a statement.  It accused Zwane of "failing" trapped illegal miners in the same manner as those trapped at Lily Mine in Mpumalanga.  This is the second time in September that Cosatu has publicly criticised Zwane.
