South Africa Seeks to Settle Marikana Claims Against Government

The South African government is considering an “alternative dispute resolution process” to settle claims against it related to the killing of 34 striking miners near the Marikana mine owned by Lonmin Plc in 2012.

The process will be headed by a judge, the presidency said in an e-mailed statement on Tuesday.

“It is hoped that the aim of achieving swift compensation for bona fide claims will be shared by all who genuinely seek to assist those who have suffered,” the presidency said.
