The massacre of 34, and almost certainly more, striking mineworkers at
Marikana (together with more than 80 injured) on 16 August has sent waves of
shock and anger across South Africa, rippling around the world. It could
prove a decisive turning-point in our country’s post-apartheid history. A
recent report also states that autopsies reveal that most of the workers
killed at Marikana were shot in the back. That is, they were escaping. A
further blow to the initial police story that they fired because they were
being attacked by an armed mob.
