Two arrested for Marikana murder
The two were arrested in connection with a murder prior to the 16 August Marikana shootings.
JOHANNESBURG - North West police have arrested two suspects in Marikana for killing a miner prior to the mass shooting incident on 16 August 2012.
The man's body was discovered by journalists near the koppie last year, where protesters had been gathering during mine strikes.
The police's Thulani Ngubane says two people were arrested in connection with the murder on Wednesday night.
"They are following up other leads on other cases that could possibly be linked to the two suspects. The suspects will appear in the Ga-Rankuwa Magistrates' Court later today."
