SA gold miners demand a 60% wage rise

Around 80,000 gold miners across South Africa are due to go on strike.

The biggest trade union is calling for a wage rise of up to 60% but mine bosses are offering a maximum of 6.5%.

A strike could cost Africa's biggest economy $35m a day in lost output.

Lerato Mbele reports from Johannesburg.
