mosebenzizwaneBusiness Report writes that Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane will visit Northam Platinum’s Zondereinde mine today (Thursday) to try and quell tensions between organised labour.  

This will be in the wake of two mineworkers having been murdered on Sunday and Monday respectively.  The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) got into a public spat on Wednesday with Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) president Joseph Mathunjwa for making allegations during a radio interview.  Tensions between the unions had been blamed for the killings at the mine, which has been closed since Sunday, although the company said there was no evidence to support this.
