19 August 2012
ANC national executive committee member Cyril Ramaphosa's investment holding company Shanduka has contributed two-million-Rands towards the burial of the 34 men who were killed in a shootout at the Lonmin mine in North West.
Expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema told a mass gathering in Marikana yesterday that the police had opened fire on the miners on Thursday to protect Ramaphosa’s interests in Lonmin.
Malema alleged that Ramaphosa had in the past spent 18-million-Rands on buying a buffalo and asked why Lonmin workers were refused the increase they were demanding.
aYesterday Lonmin announced that they would fund school tuition of the children who lost their fathers in the Marikana massacre.
