Masello Motana's Cyrilina Ramaposer
Cyrilina Ramaposer is a character and intervention conceptualised by performance artist Masello Motana to address political, economic and societal responses to the 2012 Marikana Massacre. On 16 August 2013, exactly a year after the massacre, Cyrilina Ramaposer occupied the Louis Botha statue that sits outside of Parliament. It had been a year and no one was being held accountable for murder was a justified response to deal with miners striking for a living wage.
Dressed in the green, black and yellow colours of the African National Congress Cyrilina Ramaposer sang her single Makarena on Marikana to celebrate the anniversary of the massacre.
