Johannesburg - Striking mineworkers from the Anglo Platinum mine may be behind the torching of vehicles in Khomanani, North West police said on Tuesday.

Brigadier Thulani Ngubane said four burnt vehicles were found between section one and two of Khomanani.

"It is alleged that a group of mineworkers who are on strike at Anglo Platinum were seen gathered around these areas," said Ngubane.

No arrests had been made.

In another incident, six vehicles were damaged and two Chinese shops were burnt down in Boitekong, near Rustenburg.

"The incidents occurred [on Monday] night in a shopping centre near the Jabula hostel," said Ngubane,

A case of malicious damage to property and arson was being investigated.

It was unclear if this attack was also linked to strike action.
