PRETORIA - Sibanye-Stillwater employees are camped outside the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

They say they'll stay there until the President intervenes in their four-month-long wage strike.

The NUM-affiliated workers have been sleeping on the lawns of the seat of Government since last week.

They're demanding a six-percent salary increase but Sibanye-Stillwater says their demands are not sustainable.

CEO Neal Froneman said the company can withstand a strike for years.

That led Mineral Resources Minister Gwede Mantashe to threaten to withdraw the company’s mining rights.

Employees say while they appreciate that intervention, more needs to be done.
