As South Africa reflects on the Marikana massacre that claimed the lives of 34 mineworkers seven years ago,President Cyril Ramaphosa's tweet on the commemoration of Marikana, was met with mixed reactions.
The Marikana tragedy stands out as the darkest moment in the life of our young democracy. Today we remember our 44 compatriots who lost their lives in Marikana seven years ago this week. Never again can we allow such a tragedy to befall our nation.— Cyril Ramaphosa ?? (@CyrilRamaphosa) 16 August 2019
Why CR17 was summoned to the commission since he was not making part in the leadership of that time— Mzwanele Majola (@majola145) 16 August 2019
He might be cleared by the commission, but we know the truth...— Murena Moorosi weBaphuthi (@MotsapiMoorosi1) 16 August 2019
Thank you Mr President. Please speed up any outstanding promises by Government that are not yet fullfilled to those families. We need to bring closure in this matter now.— Luzuko ??⛪?? (@LuzukoMngqibisa) 16 August 2019

Agreed wholeheartedly.— Dirk Gnodde (@DirkGnodde) 16 August 2019
BUT, BIG BUT, if the police had not opened fire, the police would have been massacred.
Right or wrong?
