Mpofu seeks state funding for Marikana victims

426998_515531581797745_1411554952_nLawyer Dali Mpofu is to take President Jacob Zuma and Justice Minister Jeff Hadebe to court to get state funding for victims of last year’s Marikana shooting.

Speaking on the sidelines of a Farlam Commission of Inquiry hearing in Centurion today, he said he would lodge an urgent application in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria this week.

“This is about what we call equality of arms. This inquiry is not an investigation, but a mission to find the truth… You cannot sponsor one party and ignore the other.”

Mpofu represents the miners injured in the shooting in August, and those arrested afterwards. SAPA
