Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa said there will be an increase in policing in the North West this week.

Minister Mthethwa said the protection of those involved in the labour disputes in the province is a matter that government takes extremely seriously.

He added that government will continue with its efforts to help resolve the present impasse with a strong focus on encouraging peaceful negotiations.

Ministerial Spokesperson David Barritt said senior police management met with representatives of labour and leading mine house in the North West on Friday.

Barritt said it was agreed in light of Lonmin call for striking workers to return to work on Wednesday additional visible policing measures would be put in place and that includes escorting buses carrying workers to the mines.

“Increased patrols along the roots that the workers are likely to the mines and increased patrol in areas where the miners live Barritt added.
