Buses stoned at Khutsong
"So when workers started going back to work they started pelting stones at the buses."
Four AngloGold Ashanti mineworkers were injured when their bus was stoned as they returned to work to end a strike, company spokesman Alan Fine said.
"The buses they were on were stoned," said Fine. "There were a few injuries. Four injuries," he said.
This happened at the mine's Moab Khutsong operations in Gauteng.
It is one of six mines affected by a strike -- Great Noligwa, Kopanang as well as the West Wits operations -- Mponeng, Savuka, and TauTona.
National Union of Mineworkers spokesman Lesiba Seshoka said mineworkers at Moab Khutsong voted on Tuesday night that they would return to work.
However, a small group of about 20 or so mainly young people were not happy with the decision.
"So when workers started going back to work they started pelting stones at the buses," said Seshoka.
Fine said the company would see what could be done to enable people to return to work if they wished to do so.
Seshoka said people were keen to return.
