[LISTEN] Evidence emerges from the new Marikana report

Independent researcher David Bruce has released a comprehensive report on the Marikana massacre on its 6th anniversary.

It has emerged that striking mine workers did not attack police at the small koppie, despite police testimony of protesters having shot at police.

David Bruce is saying that more than two-thirds of the shots fired were from R5 rifles.

What the Institute for Security Studies is doing is saying that with a new president, a new police minister and a new prosecuting head there is time now to break the legacy of Marikana and take responsibility for these unnecessary killings.

The commanders and those who pulled the trigger should be held accountable. He is even saying Riah Phiyege the then Police Commissioner and Nathi Mthetwa then police minister should be among those prosecuted.
