AMCU has received the news of the shooting of NUM Branch chairperson of Eastern Platinum Branch at Lonmin.

We condemn in the strongest terms, attacks on workers regardless of their affiliation. We send condolences to his immediate family, comrades and the organisation he belongs to.

As AMCU we pledge our support to the security agencies to get to the bottom of these killings of which our members have borne the brunt of.

We must ensure that we build peace amongst working class movements, so we are better able to resist the bosses’ attacks on the working class.

Irrespective of where a person is killed, law enforcement agencies must leave no stone unturned to bring the perpetrator to book.


Yours in health and safety

Mr Joseph Mathunjwa

AMCU President
