ANC Presidential hopeful Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has reportedly been chased from the site of the Marikana massacre.
She had visited the koppie with plans to lay a wreath to commemorate the deaths of the 34 miners shot dead by police during the 2012 tragedy. News reports claim she was confronted by a group of men in Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) regalia who asked her to leave.
News24 went on to report that one of the men was heard insisting that only those that were there on the day of the massacre should be allowed there now.
There is a growing sense of frustration in the Marikana area. Many residents feel government has done little in the way of offering reparations for the massacre.
