Cape Town - The government has confirmed that the Presidency was in consultation with the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) for President Cyril Ramaphosa to visit Marikana.
This follows a promise by Ramaphosa to Parliament a few months ago he wanted to visit Marikana and he was talking to EFF leader Julius Malema.
Ramaphosa has in the past been criticised for what happened in Marikana.
The Government Communication Information System said on Friday that efforts have been made to pay some of the families and houses being built for the affected families.
“The presidency is finalising consultations with all stakeholders including Amcu and NUM on an appropriate time and date for President Ramaphosa to visit Marikana to assess the implementation of the recommendations of the Marikana commission of inquiry,” said GCIS.
