|A fact from Mining industry of South Africa appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 3 December 2007. The text of the entry was as follows: "Did you know
Why is the first strike that is mentioned only in 2007? There is a long history of strikes in the South African mining history. There is also an extensive body of work on the history of labour in the mining industry, but no one seems to have thought of including any of this here. It seems almost as though there's a trend in the articles on South African topics to almost exclusively include information from the recent past only. I don't know whether it's because people just don't know about the history of these organisations, or if it's because a select few have some kind of agenda to make a point about post-94 SA, but it's frustrating to have these topics under-represented and poorly discussed if the secondary and tertiary sources are available for writers to use.
