The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is disturbed and deeply saddened that 16 NUM members were attacked and assaulted by alleged AMCU members while going to work on Wednesday morning at Sibanye's Gold Cooke operations in Westonaria.
The NUM can confirm that four of the 16 members who were attacked are in critical condition and three were airlifted to Milpark hospital.
The NUM is calling on the law enforcement agencies to investigate and arrest these heartless barbarians who assaulted and attacked our members. The perpetrators of this horrendous crime must be arrested as soon as possible.
The NUM will continue to fight capitalists barbarians in the mining industry that always divides black mineworkers and encourage them to assault and kill one another.
