Amcu calls for 'hit list' info

The union has denied any prior knowledge of the list or that its members may be responsible for it.

JOHANNESBURG - The Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union ( Amcu) has called on anyone with information about an apparent hit list doing the rounds in Marikana to report it to the police.

The union has denied any knowledge of the list or that its members may be responsible for it.

It's being reported that the names of three of the four miners, who were killed last week in Rustenburg after they broke away from the union's four month long strike, appeared on the document.

But Amcu President Joseph Mathunjwa says their members are not involved.

"It doesn't bring any solution to this, we condemn all strongest terms, people should refrain from doing these things because the strike is about better working conditions and earning a better salary so you can look after your family."

Miners have been on strike since January, demanding R12,500 a month.

Lonmin tried to bring an end to the financially crippling strike by sending an SMS to workers, asking them to return to work.

But it has since decided to suspend it, saying it's not helping the volatile situation.
