kusasalethuReuters reports that Harmony Gold's Kusasalethu mine west of Johannesburg has been hit by a wildcat strike triggered by the sacking of six leaders of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) for their role in a violent stoppage earlier this year.  

Spokesperson Marian van der Walt said the strike began on Friday and only a fraction of the 4,500-strong workforce showed up for work on Monday.
