A historical class action suit is set to change the future for South African miners that get sick with TB and silicosis.

To discuss the issue we speak to John Stephens from Section 27 and Tanya Charles from Sonke Gender Justice, which is a friend of the court in the case.
Then we speak to Russel & Associates’ Alan Fine and the Head of Health for the Chamber of Mines, Dr Thuthula Balfour-Kaipa.

Law Focus is produced by Elna Schutz and presented by Luxolo Matomela.
Stream Tuesdays 6-7pm on vowfm.co.za or 88.1FM in Joburg.
