amcu thumb medium80 81EWN reports that private investigator Paul O' Sullivan has asked anyone with information on the recent killings in and around Marikana on the platinum belt to come forward.  

He was hired by the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) following the deaths of at least 10 of its leaders.  Four men have gone into hiding, saying that challenging the union's leadership landed them on an alleged hit list.  But O’Sullivan said that until evidence had been brought forward, the allegations were hearsay.  He added:  “We have also set up a toll-free number which is 0800-118-118.  Anyone with any information whatsoever, regardless of who they think it might be, are welcome to call that number.  There’s a R100,000 reward being issued.”  Some of the miners have accused Amcu president Joseph Mathunjwa and others in the senior leadership of creating an environment that has enabled the murders.  Meanwhile, Police Minister Fikile Mbalula says those who face allegations of murder on the platinum belt will be fully investigated.
