THE FALL

 

It happened August 2012. Nelson Mandela was frail and after being hospitalised a year before with a respiratory infection, he was unable to influence politics at all. So nobody intervened when a workers strike at the Lonmin mine at Marikana went out of control and the South African police was called in  with deadly consequences. The former union leader – Cyril Ramaphosa, from his position on the board of Lonmin, could have argued for negotiation, even for a better deal for the workers. Instead – as a chain of emails released to the Farlam inquiry disclosed – he argued for the police to move in. In a message to fellow directors, he wrote: “The terrible events that have unfolded cannot be described as a labour dispute. They are plainly dastardly criminal and must be characterised as such… There needs to be concomitant action to address this situation.”
