The NUM is extremely disappointed that Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane has declined to address the Central Committee. We are also disappointed that the minister as the custodian of the mining industry did not see it fit to delegate someone to represent him.There are capable leaders from the DMR who can come and address the NUM Central Committee.
