Hon Deputy Speaker, I hereby move without notice on behalf of the DA:
That the House -
1) notes that 486 miners who were trapped 2 300 m underground at the Kusasalethu gold mine near Carletonville on Sunday, 22 February 2015, were all rescued successfully;
2) acknowledges that several rescue teams worked tirelessly for 12 hours to safely bring to the surface the miners who had been trapped since early Sunday morning, after a fire broke out in the mine;
3) further acknowledges the incredible danger the miners were in and the enormous risks the rescue teams had to take to safely bring nearly 500 miners safely to the surface; and
4) conveys its gratitude to those who risked their own lives to save the lives of others.
