The party’s parliamentary hopeful for Selebi-Phikwe West, Moeti Mohwasa told a rally on Sunday that the law firm would investigate the accident and help the family of the late mine worker sue the mine in the event there is evidence of negligence. The firm would also seek better compensation for the deceased.

The deceased’s family complained that they did not receive satisfactory support from the mine and even alleged that Magowe was working while his contract had long expired.
