In March 2018, Community leader Thumeka Magwangqana, lawyer Andries Nkome and Reverend Johannes Seoka travelled to London to attend mining company Lonmin’s Annual general meeting, that was held on 15 March. In the AGM, they asked uncomfortable questions to the CEO and chairperson of the company. Outside, people were protesting Lonmin’s lack of accountability for the killings of 34 mine workers who were shot dead while on strike at Lonmin’s Marikana mine in South Africa, on 16 August 2012. Watch our visitors demand justice for the Marikana mine workers, their widows and families, and the community still pushing Lonmin for better working and living conditions as they struggle with the effects of trauma and poverty.
