Marikana Must Make Us Think - Motlanthe

The recent violence in Marikana should make SA think about how it approaches social and economic problems, says Motlanthe

Deputy President, Kgalema Motlanthe, says that the recent violence at Lonmin's mine in North West should make South Africa think about how it approaches social and economic problems.

Motlanthe points out that, "The tragedy at Marikana should make us all reflect on how we confront poverty and inequality through our respective institutions and organisations."

Motlanthe states that the Marikana massacre also challenges the country to recommit itself to more effective social dialogue at national and regional levels, adding that, “We should strive to find a common vision to take us forward."
