Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union President Joseph Mathunjwa says that for the economy of South Africa to thrive, it does not the 4th Industrial Revolution. He was giving the keynote address at the 7th Anniversary of the Marikana Massacre, held at the Marikana koppie were 34 mineworkers lost their lives after a shooting spree by members of the South African Police Services, on 16th August 2012. Dressed in the same attire as he did on the fateful day, Mathunjwa said “we don’t want the 4th Industrial Revolution, but we want the 4th Economic Revolution.” He said that government’s interest was only to make profit. “If they are serious about the 4th Industrial Revolution, they must first change the curriculum in schools” he said. He highlighted that South Africa’s unemployment rate was higher than 29%, claiming it to be at 50%. Mathunjwa further said that the 4th Industrial Revolution will only enslave the black majority, saying that the number of unemployed graduates was scaringly high.
