• Voter paralysis

    With so much tilting voters against change, democratic reason is the loser, says Solly Moeng.

  • The power of perseverance

    True grit is a reliable predictor of who will achieve success in life, says Ian Mann.

  • It's the system

    The system sucks and it’s being used far too often as an excuse, says Mandi Smallhorne.

Johannesburg - Kumba Iron Ore [JSE:KIO] warned on Tuesday that its full-year earnings will likely fall at least 20%, hit by a wildcat strike at its Sishen mine and lower export iron ore prices.

The company, a unit of global miner Anglo American [JSE:AGL], said it had so far lost about 2.6 million tonnes of finished product at Sishen, where output is still being hampered by low attendance.

Intimidation at the mine is being reported even after the end of an illegal strike that lead to the dismissal of about 200 employees, it said.

Kumba, one of the world's top 10 producers of iron ore and the largest in Africa, resumed operations at the mine on October 20 after they were halted by an illegal occupation.

At 09:31 the company's shares were down 2.21% at R529.07.

Kumba will report its earnings for the year to end-December on February 12.
