NUM workers rally at Marikana stadium
NUM workers are addressed by Tripartite Alliance officials at the Wonderkop Stadium in Marikana.
RUSTENBURG - A rally by the National Union of Mineworkers is in full swing in Marikana.
The union is hosting a rally where officials from the Tripartite Alliance will address workers at the Wonderkop Stadium, about two kilometres away from where 34 miners were shot and killed during an unprotected strike in August last year.
It's also part of a recruitment drive by the union in the area following it's de-recognition by Lonmin earlier this week.
The NUM's Mxhasi Sithethil said, "It's a normal activity to organise or mobilise members. But mainly today we just want to update workers in terms of the challenges confronting the organisation in this part of the country."
