mosebenzizwaneANA reports that Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane has instructed that no stone should be left unturned in getting to the cause of the accident which claimed the lives of five mineworkers at Harmony Gold’s Kusasalethu mine last week.  

He indicated in a statement:  “This should be a turning point in as far as accidents and fatalities at our mines are concerned.  The investigation into the fall-of-ground accident has commenced, starting with an in-loco inspection immediately after our briefing earlier.”  Five employees were killed, with the bodies of the last two miners only being recovered on Thursday, almost a week after the accident.
