Zuma ‘makes up for’ Marikana absence

2012-08-22 20:16

ANC President Jacob Zuma used the James Moroka Centenary Lecture to reach out to Lonmin mine workers whose 34 colleagues were killed by police during a strike in Marikana last week.

“I have now listened to all sides, but I will not judge the incident,” he said. “The judicial commission that we have set up will uncover the truth about what happened at Marikana. It must tell us how an industrial strike degenerated into violence.”
