ancEWN reports that the African National Congress (ANC) is gravely concerned about the latest deaths in the mining industry and it has called on the sector to prioritise safety at all levels.  

The party has sent its condolences to the families of the two miners who died at Impala Platinum's Rustenburg operation on Tuesday.  The circumstances around their deaths are not yet clear, but the inspectorate of mines has launched an investigation.  It is the second mining tragedy in recent weeks.  Last month, five workers died in a seismic event at Harmony Gold's Kusasalethu mine near Carletonville.  The ANC said it would join the companies concerned in providing support to the bereaved relatives.
