BONUS – RUSTENBURG – The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) took to social media last week to call on its members to rally behind the family of a branch chairman at Lonmin’s Eastern Platinum Mine who was reportedly shot and killed at around 19:00 on Wednesday, 17 January.

According to reports the NUM member was shot at by unknown suspects at his house in the Bapong Village near Brits. He is said to have succumbed to his injuries and passed away in hospital.

The union has since called on anyone with information regarding the shooting to assist law enforcement agencies in bringing the perpetrators to book.
