21 deaths at Sibanye-Stillwater mine in 6 months
There has been another death at the Sibanye-Stillwater mine.
The mineworker died at its Khomanani mine at the Driefontein operation, west of Johannesburg after he entered a scraper path and was caught by the scraper.
The fatality brings to 21, the number of miners who have died at Sibanye-Stillwater this year alone.
Secretary-General Cosatu Bheki Ntshalintshali says we have reached a crisis and the sooner the Chamber of Mines as a whole accepts that when 21 people die within six months die in the workplace it needs to be urgently addressed.
We all need to ask what has gone wrong and what needs to be fixed urgently. Without pushing the blame, I think we are in a crisis as a country and as a sector.Bheki Ntshalintshali, Secretary-General Cosatu
We need to sit down, the workers, the different unions, in our view, we need to sit together and analyse each and every accident that has happened and ask the question, could these accidents be avoided?Bheki Ntshalintshali, Secretary-General Cosatu
