The Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union’s (AMCU) president, Joseph Mathunjwa, has accused the African National Congress (ANC) of being captured by white monopoly capital.
The Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) president Joseph Mathunjwa has hinted that he might form a political party if the ANC decides to deregister the union.
AMCU has expressed concern over miners’ conditions of employment. This as thousands of AMCU members prepare to commemorate the 7th anniversary of the Marikana tragedy on Friday.
Friday marks the 7th anniversary of the 2012 Marikana tragedy. Thirty four mine workers were shot and killed by police during a protracted wage strike on August 16 at the then Lonmin operations, now owned by Sibanye-Stillwater.
AMCU President Joseph Mathunjwa says Sibanye Stillwaters’ wage offer is an insult to workers and is a provocation for a strike.
