Union denies using witchdoctors

AUSTRALIA'S unions may offer incentives to boost their membership, but rarely would they consult a witchdoctor for help.

A mine workers' union in South Africa has accused a competitor of using witchcraft to win more recruits, an allegation taken seriously in a country where these practitioners are often recognised by law.

According to Reuters, the National Union of Mineworkers has been locked in a violent battle for membership with the newer Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union at the world's largest platinum mine, run by Impala Platinum.

One accusation centres of the AMCU using "muti" or medicines created from human or animal parts.

The union was also accused of having a "sangoma" or witch doctor.

The AMCU has denied using witchcraft.
