The President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, expelled a long-awaited Marikana Massacre news and pronounced that a commentary vindicated all tip supervision officials from any wrongdoing. The African National Congress (ANC) supervision have no domestic accountability, and it is a enlightenment of a ANC to cover adult all a wrongs. The ANC have blood on their hands, and have once again valid to be a celebration of thieving criminals.

The South African Police take a brunt of a Marikana disaster and military commissioner Ria Phiyega contingency respond to Zuma within a month on a findings. Phiyega is not fit for a position of military commissioner. Opposition parties wish some-more movement and investigations into a Commissions report. Both unions concerned in a Marikana disaster, The Association of Mineworkers and a Construction Union, (AMCU) and a National Union of Mines (NUM) have been cited in a news as not doing a conditions correctly. The executives of Lonmin have also been cited as not carrying finished adequate to obstruct a disaster.

AMCU boss Jose Mathunjwa pronounced a news was unsatisfactory since there is discuss of another investigation, an review Mathunjwa pronounced should have been resolved during a two-year Farlem Commission inquiry. Mathunjwa was unhappy that Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa, as good as Mineral Resources Minister Suzan Shabangu, were excluded of any offense.

The central antithesis party, a Democratic Alliance (DA) strongly criticizes a commentary and trust President Zuma misled a republic by saying that a Commission found a executive had played no purpose in a preference of a military to exercise tactical choice on that fatal day, when 34 miners died. The DA settled that a Constitution of South Africa placed a domestic shortcoming for a actions of a SAPS in a hands of a Police Minister.

Before a recover of a report, Zuma pronounced a miners were killers, and a military were during a stage to forestall serve murders holding place. The extraordinary criticism by Zuma, dual days before a recover of a report, was an denote that a ANC supervision was safeguarding a police. Cyril Ramaphosa, who was actively concerned in a Lonmin mine, was asked to avert a disaster and arrange for a vast military contingent. The police, who were armed for battle, shot a miners who were defenseless opposite a military-type movement of a police.

The 34 miners were shot and killed in full perspective of a world. The commissions commentary did not call for any apologies, nor remuneration for a families of victims. There were no recommendations for charge or accountability, either. The conclusions of a commissions news do not differ from a electrocute during Sharpeville in 1960, or a Soweto riots in 1976 underneath a apartheid supervision of South Africa. The genocide of a 34 miners who were brutally murdered in extended illumination is a tragedy, one that nobody is holding shortcoming for.

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) personality Julius Malema is not assured a news is justified, and will arrange a group of authorised people to investigate a 600-page report. Malema pronounced a EFF will not stop until a people responsible, in sold a domestic chosen that presided over a police, including Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, were prosecuted. Malema pronounced a domestic chosen of South Africa can't consider it is above a structure or democracy, and a probity complement contingency be means to theme anyone, regardless of position. The Marikana electrocute is a crime opposite humanity, according to Malema.

The ANC supervision allocated military Commissioner Ria Phiyega, who evidently did not have a correct experience. The ANC contingency take burden for fixation an fresh central in such a high position. Did a ANC take advantage of Phiyega? Ramaphosa suggested a military commissioner, and did Phiyega act on that advice? The news acquits Ramaphosa of all wrongdoing, and those influenced by this tragedy feel this is misleading. The commentary of a Farmlem Commission news have left a people of South Africa with a unhappy opinion toward a boss of South Africa, as good as per a discerning turnaround of releasing a Marikana electrocute report. The outcome of a news does not mention or reason accountable a people who gave a military a right to lift live ammunition, and accede to give orders to kill. Once again, a ANC supervision has managed to hedge a shortcoming for a wrong activity during Marikana.
