Ramaphosa told to stay away from Marikana commemoration next week
The families of the Marikana massacre victims apparently do not want deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa to be part of next week's commemoration event.
This is according to Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) President Joseph Mathunjwa, who met with Marikana widows on yesterday.
He said the widows were quite clear about how they feel about the deputy president. They don't want him there on Wednesday.Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter
Next week Wednesday will mark exactly five years since the mass shooting at Lonmin Platinum Mine, where 34 striking miners were gunned down by police.
Amcu is expected to hold the Marikana commemoration event on 16 August, reports EWN's Gia Nicolaides.
Mathunjwa says Marikana widows are open to having him on any other day.
Ramaphosa has been heavily criticised for calling on police to take “concomitant action” against the protesters.
