Today, thousands of miners joined the families of the men who lost their lives following the seismic event that occurred at Harmony’s Kusasalethu mine on Friday, 25 August 2017 at a memorial service to commemorate the lives of Motshewa Matuba, Mohlomi Mokhele, Relebokile Mokemane, Mohlabane Moganedi and Moss Sethafuno.

Peter Steenkamp, Harmony’s chief executive, voiced the company’s sadness at this tragic event and pledged the company’s support to their families. He also reiterated the company’s commitment to zero harm, and its full support of the investigation into the accident, which is already underway.

In addition, we must thank the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR), the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) for their support during this deeply distressing time.”
