Rustenburg - Association of Mineworkers and Construction (Amcu) president Joseph Mathunjwa arrived at the Farlam Commission hearing in Rustenburg on Monday.

He picked up an access card near the entrance and went into the hall.

His union has been accused of spearheading attacks on members of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) during the Lonmin strike, a claim he has denied.

"We are not fighting anyone. We have been organising at Lonmin and have not experienced any problems. We hold meetings. Why would we resort to violence now?" he asked during the commission's in loco inspection in Marikana.

He said he wanted the commission to uncover the truth about what led to the shooting on August 16.

    I am sure the union is aware that words can kill. Go back to your statement when you were recruiting. Do the right thing and apologize for what you have said. There is a need for honest leaders.
