Union urges audit release

Trade union Solidarity made an urgent appeal to President Kgalema Motlanthe to release the presidential audit on mining safety. The union believes the findings of the investigation may help prevent further loss of life at the country's mines. Its appeal follows another mining death on Monday at Goldfields' Driefontein mine, outside Carletonville. That fatality brought the deaths on the country's mines to 132 this year. - I-Net Bridge
