Striking Lonmin miners disperse
The miners say they'll return next week, to continue their demand for better wages.
MARIKANA - Striking mineworkers on Thursday left Marikana in the North West Province, saying they would return on Monday to discuss whether or not they should go back to work.
Lonmin bosses and unions have signed a peace accord, aiming to restore stability ahead of further negotiations.
But the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) and striking workers refused to sign the deal, saying they are still waiting for feedback from their leaders.
Earlier, Amcu's Joseph Mathunjwa said the union would hold a press conference on Friday.
The protesting miners are demanding a R12,500 wage increase.
Meanwhile, the striking miners will march to the Karee mine on Monday to ensure others stay away from work.
In August, at least 34 people were killed during clashes with the police.
President Jacob Zuma later appointed a commission of inquiry to investigate the bloodbath.
The commission has four months to conclude its investigation.
