MAPUTO, May 29 (Reuters) - South Africa's government is taking the initiative to end a crippling platinum sector strike now in its eighteenth week, new Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene said on Thursday.

Nene told reporters on the sidelines of an IMF conference in Maputo that both the platinum companies and striking union AMCU needed to realise the negative impact of the strike on the economy, and make compromises to reach a resolution.
