numeNCA reports that Joseph Montisetse is the new president of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM).  

He was elected at the union's 16th national congress, which ended on Friday night in Boksburg, Ekurhuleni.  The former NUM deputy president was up against his president, Piet Matosa.  General-secretary David Sipunzi retained his position after defeating Mbuyiseni Hibana.  Infighting has divided the NUM for years, contributing to its membership losses.  In 2011 it had a membership of more than 300,000 but that figure has declined to just below 200,000.
