We are Going to Kill Each Other Today: The Marikana Story

by T. Jika, S. Mosamo, L. Sadiki, A. Saba, F.Dlangamandla and L. Ledwaba
£15.95   paperback  Tafelberg Publishers Ltd (2013)

We are Going to Kill Each Other Today: The Marikana Story by T. Jika, S. Mosamo, L. Sadiki, A. Saba, F.Dlangamandla and L. Ledwaba On 16 August 2012 the most shocking carnage in South Africa’s recent history occurred in the platinum mining town of Rustenburg: the Marikana shooting that left 34 striking miners dead.
 
This book tells the story behind the newspaper headlines. Who was involved? Where did the miners, mostly migrant workers, come from and what were their personal circumstances? The authors explore the realities of their lives and also tells the story of “the man in the green blanket”, who became a symbol of the strike.
 
The broader context is investigated: what was the role of the mines – Lonmin in particular – and the competing unions, NUM and Amcu? What role did traditional beliefs play – did a witch doctor aggravate the situation? A striking photo section of mostly unpublished photos also chronicles the events from a different angle.
 
Through incisive investigative journalism the events and parties involved are identified and their role analysed. The findings of the Marikana commission will also be included.
