EFF opens criminal case against Ramaphosa and SAPS for Marikana massacre

Published on

The EFF has announced that it has opened a criminal case against President Ramaphosa and the SAPS for the lack of progress into the Marikana massacre and its perpetrators.

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) issued a statement on the ninth anniversary of the Marikana massacre on Monday, 16 August 2021. The party also confirmed that it has opened a criminal case against the police and President Cyril Ramaphosa for what it believes to be his implication in the murders of mineworkers in 2012.

The EFF stated that it has been nine years since the African National Congress (ANC) government supposedly killed workers in Marikana, in protection of what it believes to be rapacious and callous capitalist interests. The party has come out to salute the fighters for their courage and determination, noting that they played a role in inspiring the formation of the EFF as a political movement that is now at the forefront of the struggles of the poor, the landless, and all workers in different workplaces.

The EFF further expressed concern that after nine years, there has still been no justice or a single police officer of authority that has been held accountable, referencing this as evidence that there is no justice in South Africa. It also confirmed the opening of a criminal case against President Cyril Ramaphosa and the South African Police Service (SAPS).
