The Democratic Alliance has
called on President Jacob to commit to a date by which the official Marikana
Report would be tabled in Parliament.
The Marikana Commission of
Inquiry, headed by retired judge Ian Farlam, was established two years ago by
President Zuma to investigate the deaths of 34 miners in 2012.
DA MP of Police Dianne Kohler
Barnard said it is unlikely that the police were the only state entity
responsible for what culminated on that fateful day.
Barnard said In terms of
section 84f of the Constitution, the President is empowered to launch a
Commission of Inquiry and did so following this tragedy that gripped the world.
Barnard said it is therefore
President Zuma’s sole responsibility to submit this report to Parliament
“He should do so sooner rather
than later to avoid any speculation that he could withhold the findings and
recommendations made by the Commission to protect those implicated for undue
political reasons” Barnard added.
