The National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) will make an announcement about the ongoing strike in the metal and engineering sector today, according to spokesperson Castro Ngobese.

Foreign business people trying to start strip clubs, import used cars or set up a security company will from now on be denied business visas.
The two week-long strike led by metal workers’ union Numsa could be just the first round in a battle to win wage increases in the metals and engineering sector this year.
Eskom might have declared a profit of R7.1 billion on Friday, but it is still icurring losses where it really counts.
The inventor of the Please Call Me, Nkosana Makate, is headed for Bloemfontein after losing the first round of his legal battle with Vodacom.
