The DA sends our condolences to the families of the miners whose lives were lost after having been trapped underground following a tremor that took place on Friday.
We know that there are miners who are still trapped underground at the Kusasalethu mine near Carletonville. We therefore urge the mine owners and authorities to do everything in their power to ensure their safe return.
We also urge mine owners and authorities to support the families of those who remain trapped underground during this difficult time.
Miners work in extremely challenging conditions to provide for their families and to contribute to this vital sector of our economy. They deserve to have no effort spared in ensuring their safe return.
