NUM remembers Chibok girls
The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) still expresses its horror about the case in Nigeria where 200 girls were abducted last year.
 
It has now been a year since 276 girls were abducted from a secondary school in northern Nigeria by Nigerian militant Islamist group Boko Haram, and 219 are still missing.
 
Ceremonies are being staged today around the world to mark the anniversary.
 
On 14 April 2014, 276 girls were kidnapped from a government secondary school in the northern Nigerian town of Chibok, Borno state.
 
The NUM is still calling for the safe return of the Nigerian girls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram.The NUM fully support the ‘Bring back our girls' campaign.
 
The NUM also calls on student formations and other progressive forces in South Africa to show solidarity and empathy about the deadly attack that happened in Kenya in the beginning of this month when a gunmen stormed the Garissa University College in Garissa, killing at least 150 innocent students and injuring 79 or more.
 
"We urge our students formations and other progressive forces in South Africa to support the affected families. We need to internalise their pain, and just imagine if those brutal killings had happened in our own country," said NUM General Secretary Frans Baleni.
