A tragedy that is forever etched in the collective memory of all South Africans.
Anglican Archbishop Thabo Makgoba opened the Sibanye-Stillwater Marikana Memorial Lecture with a prayer for the lives lost on that fateful day.
Former anti-apartheid activist, Mampela Ramphele, paid tribute to the dead miners for their bravery.
Mantashe also honoured the victims on behalf of government.
Sibanye-Stillwater highlighted its efforts to boost economic development and job creation in Marikana since taking over Lonmin two years ago.
Sibanye-Stillwater says it’s committed to building a good relationship between the company and members of the local community.
