After watching the documentary 'miners shot down' I came away quite shocked by what I saw as a series of poor decisions in regards to how best to deal with the striking miners, and of course.. the brutality of the poilce ( who were following orders it should be said) If I'm honest also, I came away thinking that Cyril Ramaphosa, was not an innocent man, but had let the miners down badly. Very badly.
Well... apparently he's been cleared. [click]
Watch the film.. see for yourself [click]
I don't have all the details of the case, but I will say this. Poor people rarely get justice.
