Marikana activist says Ramaphosa is the 'monster that caused Lonmin massacre'

02 August, 04:28 PM

Marikana and housing activist Napoleon Webster criticised the media calling it "the darling of Cyril Ramaphosa" at the Socio-Economic Rights Institute of South Africa centre on Wednesday.

Webster, who was released after 200 days in jail, told the media to stop being biased about the coverage of Marikana.

"Whatever happened on the 16th of August in 2012 is still happening daily...nothing has changed. Cyril is still the same monster who caused the Lonmin massacre," he said.

The housing activist said they have heard nothing about the Deputy President being charged, adding he is not welcome in Marikana. 

"When I was in prison I heard that he wanted to come to Marikana to apologise….we feel that this is not an apology, it's just a way to try and boost his presidency."

In 2016, Webster was charged for hacking ANC councilor Sabata Petros Chale to death in Marikana. The Economic Freedom Fighters supporter denies this, stating it was "politically motivated" and a plot by Deputy President, Cyril Ramaphosa.
