Inkampani yezimayini i-Rio Tinto iphoqeleke ukuthi ivalwe KwaZulu-Natali ngenxa yodlame oluqhubekayo olungalawuleki.

Ngemuva kokuvala isikhashana ngowezi-2019, inkampani ithathe isinqumo sokumisa ukusebenza ebhizinisini layo lezokumbiwa phansi eNingizimu Afrika, i-Richards Bay Minerals (RBM).

Lokhu kuza ngemuva kokuthi kubulawe isikhulu esiphezulu, kwavalwa imigwaqo, nokucekelwa phansi kwemishini ebiza izigidi zamarandi ezigamekweni eziningi.

Ngenyanga edlule, uNico Swart oyimenenja yakwa-RBM udutshulwa wabulawa esendleleni eya emsebenzini.

UMqondisi Ophethe kwa-RBM uWerner Duvenhage utshele i-Bloomberg ukuthi inkampani ibeka phambili ukuphepha kwabasebenzi bayo abayi-5 000.

“Sekunzima ukuthi siqhube ibhizinisi,” kusho uDuvenhage etshela leli phephandaba. “Ngeke sibuyele emuva kuze kuphephe abantu bakithi.”

UDuvenhage uthe imibiko yakamuva yodlame kungenzeka ukuthi ixhumene nokungasebenzi kwentsha.

Futhi i-RBM ayilona ibhizinisi lokuqala elikhulu ukuphoqeleka ukuthi livale iminyango yalo eNingizimu Afrika ngenxa yezinkinga ezigxile ezweni.

Umshicileli wezindaba ze-Citizen ufanise ukuvalwa nokwenkampani yobisi i-Clover, esanda kunquma ukuvala ukusebenza kwayo e-Lichtenburg e-North West.

Umenzi webhotela uye wavala ngenxa yokuwa kwezinsizakalo kulelo dolobha.

Ukungasebenzi kahle kukahulumeni kudlange njengodlame lapha, futhi kuqeda imisebenzi nemali.
