Prominent rights activist George Bizos Wednesday accused South African police of apartheid-era brutality during an inquiry into the killing of 34 striking miners, after an officer testified he was told to take the blame for the crackdown.

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa's deputy president will meet with the mining industry and unions on Thursday for a regularly scheduled forum aimed at bringing stability to the sector, as a crippling platinum strike approaches its ninth week.

S.Africa's ANC in damage control over Zuma home upgrades

South Africa's ruling ANC sought Thursday to limit the damage from a damning ombudsman's report which ruled that multi-million dollar state-funded upgrades to President Jacob Zuma's private home were unlawful. There was a scathing media reaction to the report, which described the $23 million spent on renovations at Zuma's country homestead as excessive and ordered him to repay some of the costs. "Licence to loot," thundered the headline in The Mail and Guardian, which first broke the story about the renovations in 2009.
