The family and victims of the Marikana Massacre says they feel like second class citizens to have been ignored all these years.

Director at the Socio-Economics Rights Institute (Seri), Nomzamo Zondo, who represents the families and the victims has been speaking in a panel discussion as they commemorate the
10th anniversary since the tragic incident.

Thousands of mine workers at Lonmin mine were met by their tragic fate on this day while striking and demanding Salary increase from R6,000 to R12,500 a month.

34 were killed and others sustained critical injuries from gunshots.

Zondo says it is unfair that the miners were punished for speaking out against their working and living conditions at Lonmin mine .

She says it’s also unfair that there are some families that have been compensated while some haven’t been, even after making so much effort to try and get compensation over the years.
