protestThe Citizen reports that while more than 250 employees of a manganese mine in the Northern Cape have not been paid their salaries for the past five months, the mine’s owner is earning millions.  

He is Manne Dipico, a former Northern Cape premier.  Diro Manganese is currently under business rescue.  About 40 of the workers staged a sit-in at the Diro offices in Centurion for almost a week, but they were evicted on Tuesday night in terms of a court order.  The rescue practitioner indicated that “payment of the outstanding salaries and wages will be dependent on the terms of the post-commencement finance [PCF] and the turnaround plan.”  According to the workers, more than 250 of them were last paid salaries in April.
