Miner out on bail in South Africa

Issue No. 2395

Striking South African platinum miner and leading AMCU union activist Makhanya Siphamandla was released on bail on Friday of last week. Makhanya and another militant are charged with attempted murder. 

Makhanya says he was speaking at a strike rally when the alleged attack took place. He said, “Thanks to all the progressive forces outside from AMCU, your support has been great for us. United we are strong. Divided we fall.”
