mosebenzizwaneBusiness Report writes that Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane wants the investigation into the killings of two Northam Platinum miners to be expedited, and for the mine to return to stability.  

“We must return stability to this mine in order for us to focus on critical issues facing this sector.  Let us condemn violence and killings in line with the Framework Agreement for a Sustainable Mining Industry, and let us work together for sustainable solutions,” Zwane said on Thursday following a meeting with mine management, the police and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM).  The department is expected to return to the mine next week for an update from mine management and labour.
