The sentencing of 20 Boeremag members is set to take place in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria.
JOHANNESBURG – The case against three men accused of killing rival union members in North West&39;s Platinum Belt has been postponed.
The men are alleged to be members of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM).
They&39;re accused of killing leaders of rival Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu).
After the killing of a number of Amcu leaders in the Platinum Belt, six men appeared in two different courts.
Three of the men are appearing in the Brits Magistrate&39;s Court. One is said to be a member of rival NUM.
The other three were meant to appear in the Rustenburg Magistrate&39;s Court on Tuesday, but documentation issues halted their first appearance.
David Manqabo, one of the accused, is a former Amcu branch chairperson at Lonmin mine.
Amcu says the union has been infiltrated by NUM agents.
AMCU&39;s Lonmin Shaft chairperson, Joseph Manyenge says he&39;s worried about the safety of union members on the Platinum Belt.
The NUM was contacted for comment on the allegations against them, but they declined.
Manqabo and his co-accused&39;s case was postponed until further investigations can take place.
