An evidence leader (guy in white jumpsuite) and Advocate Dali Mpofu (with the green hat) goes over evidence of the day of the Marikana massacre while members of the South African Police service watches on.


An evidence marker to where one of the miners that was shot dead was found.

On the day we visited Marikana I met Shadrack Mtshamba, he was one of the mineworkers who narrowly escaped the fatal shooting of his fellow mineworkers on the 16th of August 2012.

He told me about the nightmares he gets from the events on that day: “That memory will come back. The pictures of what happened will come back.”
