A list detailing the names of miners who have agreed to return to work and break the strike on the platinum belt is allegedly being used as a hit list.

The list of names, allegedly compiled by employees of mining house Lonmin – which has found its way into the hands of both the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) – features the details of three of the four people who were brutally murdered in the township of Bapong, near Marikana, in the past week.

City Press has seen part of the list, which contains the names of the miners who have returned to work, their personnel numbers and the name of the union to which they belong.

The names of three of the murdered men, two of which have not been released, were on the list.
