On 16th August 2012, 18 years into the dawn of the democratic South Africa, police shot dead 34 striking workers Lonmin, a platinum mine in Marikana, setting off a wave of protests. In what has been described as “South Africa’s first post-apartheid massacre,” the miners were killed after demanding a living wage of R 12 500. It is now 8 years since the massacre and no one has been held accountable for these deaths, including 10 (which include security and officers) that occurred prior to the 16th August 2012.
