IFP CALLS FOR
THE IMMEDIATE CLOSURE OF SASOL

Cape Town : January 28, 2005

The IFP spokesperson on Labour, Prince NE Zulu MP, calls for the immediate closure of Sasol until all measures ensuring the safety of workers in terms of gas leakages, are put in place.

“This call for the closure of Sasol might be described as too harsh by others but we cannot allow profits to be more important than human beings. We have said this before: captains of industries must desist from making profits over the lives of workers. The safety of workers must take precedence. Life is more precious than anything else.”

“We urge the Minister of Labour and Trade and Industry to get to the bottom of the investigation. We demand to know why Sasol has one gas leak after the other,” Prince Zulu said.
