Johannesburg – Minister of Mineral Resources Mosebenzi Zwane’s Mining Charter was just an effort to score political points, said Joseph Mathunjwa.

The president of the Association of  Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) was speaking at the Business Day Dialogue Breakfast  to commemorate the fifth Marikana anniversary on Friday. He was joined by Lonmin Chief Executive Ben Magara who explained that the Chamber of Mines issue with the charter is that there was no consultation between the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) and stakeholders.

“It is code of good practice to consult with stakeholders and to set up a timeframe to achieve [goals],” said Mathunjwa. “The minister used the process for political reasons, to score political points around it.”
