Quotes

"We've been debating equity. Initially, we were supposed to get 26%, then Cyril Ramaphosa] took 18% [in a 2003 empowerment deal]. Now we were looking at 8%, and suddenly that is getting cut too with employees and individuals getting a stake. Now we're down to 1.8%" said one of the former representatives
Mr X said he did not know the person and that he was adamant that he had been present at the caucus. "Mr Mpofu, I do not know what you are saying … I’m not changing what I am saying, the police are innocent, we were going to kill the police."
"It was excruciating in the sense that Aquarius Platinum is a low-grade platinum producer in South Africa. The expectations are always very high from the employees to compete with other platinum producers" NUM said in a statement
"I deny ever bringing undue political pressure of any sort to bear on any member of the SAPS team during the Marikana event" he said
