AMCU members have disrupted the memorial for the five Harmony Gold miners who died last week.  

They tried to block a few representatives from the unions to speak.  

They were singing and dancing in a small group in the far side of the tent when representatives took the podium.  

They were later addressed and asked to stop disrupting proceedings.  

The regional chair of AMCU has pleaded with them to keep quiet and respect the proceedings.  

They were especially unhappy with representatives from NUM.

The Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union’s Sanele Miyeza challenged Motsepe and Mineral Resources Mosebenzi Zwane to making sure that those responsible were indeed held accountable.

Accountability was essential as workers, shift bosses and miners were often used as scapegoats and that senior mining executives were hardly ever held accountable themselves.
