Kusasalethu workers stranded
Some of the Harmony Gold Kusasalethu miners have been left helpless, due to heavy flooding.
CARLETONVILLE - Some workers at Harmony Gold's Kusasalethu mine said some of their colleagues, who have been asked to leave the premises, are stranded due to severe flooding.
One mine worker said more than 80 people, mostly migrant workers from Mozambique and Swaziland, have been staying at a church in the area after the mine was temporarily shut down.
"At this moment, the people are there, but there's big rain now…"
The Merafong municipality's Slums Magodielo said disaster management officials will be sent to assist.
"The municipality will go and check and see how it can assist.
"It will also ensure that it meets with all the relevant stakeholders … to make sure those people [who are stranded] can get help as soon as possible."
