Zuma appoints Marikana commission

first_img24 August 2012President Jacob Zuma has announced the composition and terms of reference of the judicial commission of inquiry into the Marikana tragedy, calling for cooperation from all parties involved so that the country can come to a full understanding of the causes behind the tragedy.Thirty-four people were killed in clashes with the police at the mining town of Marikana near Rustenburg last Thursday. Prior to this, 10 other people – including two police officers – were killed in nearly a week of fighting between rival worker factions.A number of memorial services took place around the country on Thursday as South Africa mourned those who lost their lives and came together to show support for the families of the deceased.Addressing journalists in Pretoria on Thursday, Zuma said the commission of inquiry would be headed by Judge Ian Farlam, a retired judge of the Supreme Court of Appeal, and include advocates Bantubonke Tokota and Pingla Hemraj.In investigating the events leading up to the tragedy, the commission has been tasked with looking into the conduct of mining company Lonmin, the South African Police Service (SAPS), and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU).Regarding Lonmin, the commission will investigate, in particular, whether the company:Exercised it best endeavours to resolve any disputes which may have risen between itself and the labour force on one hand, and generally among its labour force on the other.Responded appropriately to the threat and outbreak of violence which occurred at its premises.By act or omission, created an environment which was conducive to the creation of tension, labour unrest, disunity among its employees or other harmful conduct.Employed sufficient safeguards and measures to ensure the safety of its employees, property and the prevention of the outbreak of violence between any parties.The commission will also examine Lonmin’s policies generally, including its procedure, practices and conduct relating to its employees and organised labour.“It will also investigate whether by act or omission, the company directly or indirectly caused the loss of life or damaged to persons or property,” Zuma said.Regarding the SAPS, the Commission will look at:The nature, extent and application of any standing orders, policy considerations, legislation or other considerations in dealing with the situation that gave rise to the incidents.The fact and circumstances that gave rise to the use of force and whether this was reasonable and justifiable in the circumstances.The role played by SAPS through its respective units, individually and collectively in dealing with the incident.Whether by act or omission, it directly or indirectly caused the loss of life or harm to persons or property.Regarding the NUM and AMCU, the Commission will look at:Whether the unions had exercised its best endeavours to resolve any disputes which may have arisen between itself and Lonmin or the other union or other parties.The extent to which the unions exercised effective control over its membership and those allied to it, in ensuring that their conduct was lawful and did not endanger the lives and property of other persons.Whether by act or omission, it directly or indirectly caused the loss of life or harm to persons or property.Zuma said the commission would also look into the role played by the Department of Mineral Resources, any other government department or agencies in relation to the incidents, and whether this was appropriate in the circumstances and consistent with their duties and obligations according to the law.“The Commission will also look into the conduct of individuals and loose groupings in fermenting and/or otherwise promoting a situation of conflict and confrontation which may have given rise to the tragic incident, whether directly or indirectly,” the President said.The commission will submit interim reports and recommendations to Zuma each month before the final report is presented.The commission’s work will be completed in four months, and within a month thereafter it will submit its final report to the President.“The commission shall, where appropriate, refer any matter for prosecution, further investigation or the convening of a separate inquiry to the appropriate law enforcement agency, government department or regulator regarding the conduct of a certain person or persons,” Zuma said.It will also have the necessary powers, including the power to enter and search premises, secure the attendance of witnesses and compel the production of documents.“We urge all affected parties to work with the commission so that the truth can be uncovered about what really happed in Marikana,” Zuma said.Source: SANews.gov.zalast_img read more

a month agoEvra: Man Utd must rediscover arrogance

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Evra: Man Utd must rediscover arroganceby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United hero Patrice Evra has called for them to get their “arrogance” back. United face West Ham – two of the Frenchman’s former clubs – this weekend.Evra told United’s official website: “West Ham is a good club and I think Manuel Pellegrini is doing a great job.”They will go for it. I remember I was still playing for West Ham and they played against United. “During the week, actually all the players were so focused in training and not one of them was thinking they were going to lose against United.”They were like we are going to beat them and win against United. I was a West Ham player but a United fan and I was a little bit hurt to say: “Wow, my club is getting really down”, if they don’t think even one per cent they are going to lose that game. “The problem is they won that game 3-1, West Ham, so I was happy but really upset. Wow, we need to fix my club and it’s why we are Manchester United.”We played against Leicester and many people said it was going to be a tough game because they’re in form but it’s what I’m talking about. “Where is the respect for Manchester United? I want people to fear us again and people have to go out and play better and win the games.” last_img read more

GIF: Arkansas Blows Three-Point Lead With Awful Foul Late Against Alabama

first_imgAn Arkansas Razorbacks cheerleader.JACKSONVILLE, FL – MARCH 19: A cheerleader for the Arkansas Razorbacks watches on against the Wofford Terriers during the second round of the 2015 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena on March 19, 2015 in Jacksonville, Florida. (Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)Arkansas and Alabama are currently in overtime, but ask any Razorback fan, it should have never gotten this far. With under five seconds left, and a three point lead, Arkansas committed the cardinal sin of fouling a player on a layup, and sending him to the line for a game-tying free throw. Arkansas’ Bobby Portis fouled Alabama forward Michael Kessens, who made the bucket, and sunk the free throw to send the game to overtime. The game is tied at 86 with under two minutes remaining.last_img read more
