Listeners: Dlamini-Zuma should have addressed Marikana issue long ago
Presidential candidate and former African Union chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma was denied entry in Marikana on Tuesday because of "unresolved" issues between AMCU and the ANC government.
Dlamini-Zuma was in the area to lay a wreath on the koppie where 34 striking miners were shot dead by police in 2012.
The Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) members told Dlamini-Zuma "not use the pain of mine workers to pave way to be elected ANC president"
CapeTalk/702 listeners weighed in on the matter saying Dlamini-Zuma should have addressed the matter when she was chairperson of the African Union (AU).
This Marikana thing happened under the ANC government ... she must take responsibility that it happened under their watch, she cannot say she was not here all the time. She used to attend ANC meetings in South Africa even though she was working for the AU, so its a lie that she was not here...Vuyo, Orlando
If she really wanted to show the people of Marikana that she is really feeling their pain, she would've sent a video clip or a delegation from her office but no she kept quiet.Mahlomola, Free State
The ANC government is totally responsible for the Marikana massacre.Marilyn, Springs
Dlamini-Zuma didnt have to be in South Africa to address the Marikana issue. She missed the opportunity and as the head of the AU she was supposed to address it at that time...Nthabiseng, Pretoria east
Nkosazana's leader, DP Cyril Ramaphosa was advised against visiting #Marikana, he took the advice, what made NDZ to think she can visit 😂😂— Shopsteward(Retired) (@Mzidlanga) August 22, 2017
