A roundtable discussion reflecting on the 10 years since the Marikana Massacre.

It has been 10 years since the Marikana Massacre in North West shook South Africa’s young democracy.

Thirty-four miners were brutally killed by the South African Police Service on 16 August 2012 following a strike at the Lonmin platinum mine. The massacre was a result of the culmination of a series of violent encounters between the SAPS, Lonmin security and the miners who were striking for better working conditions and salaries amongst other issues.

Now, 10 years later, the toughest question has remained what has changed in the 10 years to bridge the salary gap of the miners and improve working conditions at the mine as well as compensation for the victims of those who died in the 2012 strike?
