numFin24 reports that the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) Matlosana region will embark on a protest march against AngloGold Ashanti on Tuesday.  

This will come after the miner announced in June its intention to retrench 8,500 workers at two operations in Matlosana and Carletonville.  NUM Matlosana region education secretary Masibulele Naki said in a statement on Monday:  "The NUM will fight and defend the working class dignity to expose the brutal capitalists of AngloGold Ashanti to retrench more than 8,500 workers and its brutal exercise that shows how the employer values black mineworkers.”  The march will be from the Vaal Reefs Umzimuhle shopping centre to the AngloGold office at No1 Vaal Reefs from 15:00 on Tuesday.
