The world's top platinum producer, Anglo American Platinum, has announced it is cutting up to 14,000 South African miners' jobs as part of a restructuring plan.
It is thought the move could trigger a repeat of last year's strikes when around 50 people died.
The unrest was rooted in a union turf war and aggravated by income disparities within the industry and low wages for dangerous work.
