Mankayi case - Constitutional Court ruling
AngloGold Ashanti learned today of the death of Mr Thembekile Mankayi. We wish to offer our condolences to his family and friends. The company has noted the decision of the Constitutional Court to grant Mr Mankayi leave to appeal against the decision of the Supreme Court of Appeal which itself upheld the June 2008 Johannesburg High Court decision that employees who qualify for benefits in respect of the Occupational Diseases in Mines and Works Act (ODMWA) may not, in addition, lodge civil claims against their employers in respect of their relevant conditions. We are still studying the details of the judgment.
