Cyril’s chilling Marikana email

2012-10-23 08:24

Business mogul and ANC national executive committee member Cyril Ramaphosa allegedly said in an email discussion between Lonmin management and government officials on the eve of the Marikana shooting that events around the strike “are plainly dastardly criminal acts and must be characterised as such”.

Ramaphosa is a Lonmin shareholder and former secretary general of the National Union of Mineworkers. He made an offer of R2 million for the burial of the slain mine workers, which was rejected by leaders of the strike. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
