Solidarity – 8 May 2011

Recently the NPA told Carte Blanche that no one was above the law. But does that apply to a nephew of a president, a grandson of Nelson Mandela, and the president’s private attorney? These men are the directors of Aurora Empowerment Systems and the miners who work for them believe they are untouchable. Wellington Ngubeni (Clerk: Aurora Mine, Orkney): ” What makes us furious is that we don’t know why the President has been quiet about [the] Aurora saga, because he is quiet like a dead person. He is the President because of us, but his nephew is destroying us.”
