Pan Africanist Congress of Azania (PAC) is dissatisfied with the living conditions of mineworkers. We have not seen the government taking responsibility to compensate the lives of Marikana Massacre victims, they do not want to account for what they have done.
The Farlam Commission, like other toothless commissions, did not deliver closure to the victims of Marikana more particularly the 34 widows who lost their husbands and fiancés who played a role of breadwinner in their beloved poor families.
What is making the matter difficult is that the prime perpetrator is now having ambitious to become the president of his party and thereafter lead our country. Cyril “Buffalo” Ramaphosa played an active role in the killings of our people in a greed campaign of shielding his own interests which are more important than lives of our people.
We do not want to see another criminal succeeding another criminal. There seems to be a precedence in these country that to qualify as a Head-of-State you must first commit offence and that serves as a credential or requirement. We do not want to see Ramaphosa being crowned presidency in the Union Building but we want to see him serving 3 life sentences in Kgosi Mampuru Correction service because he needs to be rehabilitated, he must be corrected for the killings of our brothers, fathers and uncles in Marikana.
Our primary demand that we raise every year is that, like Sharpeville/Langa, Soweto Massacre, Marikana Massacre must also be recorded on our history. We must take day off from our daily duties as a way of displaying honour to the fallen martyrs who fought the ANC elite capitalist government which serves the interests of “comrades” rather than the popular masses.
