A wildcat strike will continue at a mine operated by South Africa's Northam Platinum after workers decided at a mass meeting to stay away.

This was announced by a spokesman for the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) said on Thursday.

NUM spokesman Livhuwani Mammburu told Reuters that the strikers, who want the chief executive removed over what they say are unfair hiring and firing practices, had indicated they would “fight to the bitter end”.
