One week after the resolution of the six-week strike amongst Lonmin workers in South Africa, that led to the deaths of 46 people, workers at other mines are walking out in disputes over pay and conditions.

Mr Gibson described the mining strikes as "a microcosm" of South Africa's society amind election campaigning.
