Four years ago, 38 employees of a platinum mine in Marikana, South Africa, were killed by the police, breaking up a strike. More than 70 others were wounded. The Commission of Enquiry into the killings said that one issue that ignited the unrest was the lack of adequate accommodation provided by the company’s owners, Lonmin, for its 20,000 employees.
Four years on, little has changed. This report examines Lonmin’s failures and fabrications on its legal obligations to provide adequate accommodation and why it still hasn’t put its own house in order.
