Johannesburg - Police said on Tuesday they had cleared striking miners from Kumba Iron Ore's giant Sishen mine and returned equipment seized by the strikers to the company, a unit of global mining giant Anglo American.

A police spokesperson said that 40 of the wildcat strikers had been arrested in the operation.

      I just hope that they pursue the case against the 40 wildcat strikers they've arrested. It is time that people get punished for the actions they take and don't just get a slap on the wrist.

    These workers are ungrateful and should be fired. They received in 1 go R570 000 from the company earlier in the year and look at them now. I think they needed to get financial advice and not strike. So this also proofs it is not how much money you have but how you manage it!

    SAP take a bow -why was that so hard? Force is sometimes a neccesary evil!
