North West Premier Thandi Modise has expressed concern about incidents of violence and called on AMCU to respect its earlier commitment to a non-violent strike action.

Premier Modise’s Spokesperson Lesiba Kgwele said she wishes to express her disappointment that acts of violence have emerged amid allegations of intimidation of non-striking workers, barricading of some routes and pelting of motorists with stones. She wishes to appeal to striking AMCU members to respect the rights of other citizens, their freedom of movement and their properties.

“Premier Modise has reminded AMCU that while workers’ right to strike is protected by the constitution, the rule of law has to be upheld and peace maintained to ensure protection of life, property and the advancement of the rights of all.

 The Premier’s plea follows reported incidents that according to police occurred in Mmantsere near Mogwase, route between Zinniaville and Khuseleka mine.

A bus transporting an Impala Platinum mine soccer team from Olympia Park stadium was allegedly stoned by a group of people at Freedom Park.
