Four years after the Marikana massacre that left 41 miners dead from the bullets of police officers, Andrew and Rori reflect on the commemorative events of the fatal day (16 August 2012) and ask whether they don’t suggest that in spite of what politicians say, general society has long since stopped caring about the people of Marikana and the families of the fallen miners. Politicians seem to only raise Marikana when there are political points to be scored, and on this day the people of Marikana are still crying out for justice. They speak to Joseph Mathunjwa, President of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) and the Democratic Alliance’s spokesperson, Mabine Seabe.
