Questions raised about role of a British company in South African mining massacre

 The Bureau of Investigative Journalism 09 December 2019

On 16 August 2019, South Africa witnessed the biggest massacre of people since the end of the Apartheid era when 34 strikers were killed at a mine in Marikana. Later evidence pointed to execution style killings carried out by the South African police. Now the British company that owned the mine, Lonmin, are coming under fire for possible involvement. The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, a not-for-profit organisation in the UK that produces high-quality investigations for the press, has found evidence to suggest the company collaborated with the police to form a plan to break the strike. (2449 Words) - By Maeve McClenaghan and David Smith
