A probe has been launched into the weekend death of five miners at Gold Fields’ Driefontein mine. The miners were killed due to smoke inhalation, while 14 of their colleagues were hospitalised. This brings to 46 the number of miners who have been killed on duty this year. National Union of Mineworkers’ spokesperson Lesiba Seshoka said: “The CEO of the mine should be arrested as well to send a strong message”.
