JOHANNESBURG - One South Africa Movement leader Mmusi Maimane has called for those who ordered the hit on the Marikana miners to be held accountable.

He once again urged President Cyril Ramaphosa to declare 16 August "Marikana Memorial Day".

"I came here 10 years ago to [Riah] Phiyega's press conference and I asked her, who gave the instruction to use live ammunition to be used against fellow Africans, and she said she doesn't know," Maimane said.

"Even now she's still denying it. And I'm saying in 2024 we must bring a government that will prosecute Phiyega and the minister of police and all those who were involved in murdering the people of South Africa."
