One killed in protest at RPlat shaft

Deceased was not employed by Royal Bafokeng Platinum.

Royal Bafokeng Platinum (RBPlat) said one person was killed and a conveyor belt was burnt during overnight protests at one of the platinum producer’s shafts in the country’s North West Province.

“An individual within the crowd was shot and killed by live ammunition. Based on preliminary evidence, including video footage, it is believed that the shooting was from within the group of protesters. The deceased was not employed by RBPlat,” the company said in a statement on Thursday.

The incident took place on Wednesday night and a company spokeswoman said operations were continuing at the mine.
