'Foreign forces' behind S.Africa's platinum strike: ANC

South Africa's ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe during a press briefing in Johannesburg on June 8, 2014South Africa’s ruling party claimed “foreign forces” may be behind a lengthy platinum strike that has battered the continent’s most developed economy, a top party official said on Sunday. The ANC secretary general, Gwede Mantashe, said a meeting of the party’s highest decision-making body had looked into the causes behind the wage dispute, now in its fifth month. “It is a signal, small as it may sound, of foreign forces taking an active interest in destabilising South Africa and its economy,” he said. He also alleged that a senior official of the opposition leftist Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party, led by former ANC youth leader Julius Malema, had been directly involved in the wage negotiations between the platinum mine owners and the union.
