amcu thumb medium80 81News24 reports that members of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) disrupted the memorial on Monday for the five Harmony Gold miners who died last week.  

They tried to block a few representatives from the other unions from speaking at the Kusasalethu mine, near Carletonville.  They were singing and dancing in a small group in the far side of the tent when representatives took to the podium.  The members were later addressed and asked to stop disrupting proceedings.  The regional chair of Amcu pleaded with them to keep quiet and respect the proceedings.  They were especially unhappy with representatives from the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM).
