South Africa - Police Stop Malema From Addressing Miners

South African police stopped ANC renegade Julius Malema from addressing a group of striking miners on Monday, a witness said, as the government sought to contain labour unrest in the country's mines.

After arguing with police in Marikana, about 100 km (60 miles) northwest of Johannesburg, Malema was escorted out of the area in his vehicle, the witness added.

The government said on Friday it would act against "illegal gatherings" and those trying to incite violence among miners. Malema, the former leader of the ANC's youth wing who was expelled from the party this year for indiscipline, has become President Jacob Zuma's most strident critic.
Malema has called on miners to make the industry "ungovernable".
