Johannesburg - The terms of reference for the Marikana commission of inquiry contained differing dates and lengths for the investigation, The Star newspaper reported on Friday.

The proclamation by President Jacob Zuma stated the investigation would cover the period of August 11 to August 16, according to the newspaper.

The terms of reference published in the Government Gazette however state the investigation would cover the period from August 9 to August 18.

This would mean that former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema's visit to the mine on August 18 could also be included in the investigation.

The conduct of individuals and loose groupings in encouraging conflict, which may have played a role in the shooting, would be investigated, according to the report.

The shootings were related to an illegal strike at Lonmin's platinum mine in Marikana, North West.

The actions of Lonmin, trade unions, the police, the department of minerals and energy, other government departments, and other individuals who may have contributed to the situation would be investigated.

The department of justice was not immediately available for comment.
