Marikana - Friday marks the seventh anniversary of the Marikana Massacre which saw 34 miners gunned during a strike at the Lonmin platinum mine in the North West province and calls for the arrest of those responsible have continued to grow.
Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng said that the massacre was a typical example of how some leaders handle problems in South Africa.
Former chairperson of parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa) Themba Godi also weighed in on the debate via his Twitter account where he posted: “Tomorrow marks 7 years since the Marikana massacre. We must never forget those workers killed to protect capital. Workers of Azania Unite!!”
“The boers have Sharpeville?/Langa, Soweto, Boipatong massacres. So the ANC has a massacre of Africans in its own name: Marikana. So much blood spilt in Marikana, what are the conditions of workers in the mines? Focus is on the few invited to the table of the exploiters,” Godi posted.
