Johannesburg - Two men arrested in connection with the murder of a National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) branch secretary are expected to appear in the Rustenburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.

North West police spokesperson Brigadier Thulani Ngubane said the two, aged 35 and 37, were arrested on Friday in connection with the murder of Daluvuyo Bongo.

"The arrest of the two suspects happened whilst they were on duty at Lonmin Mine in Marikana. The 35-year-old suspect was arrested at Rowland shaft No 4 while the 37-year-old was arrested at 4 Belt shaft. The two suspects are residents of Wonderkop informal settlement in Marikana."

Bongo was gunned down on 5 September in Marikana. He was found in a pool of blood in a room at Wonderkop Hostel.

In another case four people arrested for violence linked to the Anglo American Platinum (Amplats) strike were expected to appear in the Rustenburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.

North West police said they were arrested on Friday night while they were marching towards Amplats' Khomanani 1 Mine.

Ngubane said police used teargas and rubber bullets to disperse the group of about 1 000. The group retaliated with petrol bombs which damaged one of the police's Nyala vehicles.

"The police managed to put out the fire and no injuries were reported from either side."

He said the group disappeared into the Zakhele informal settlement and four people were arrested for public violence.

Forty other people arrested for public violence in Nkaneng near Photsaneng will also appear in the Rustenburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.

They were arrested on 5 October after a man was shot twice and later died in hospital. A second man was burnt to death at the informal settlement.

A minibus taxi and a car were also burnt and another minibus taxi was pelted with stones.
