Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) President Joseph Mathunjwa at the 6 year anniversary of the Marikana massacre commemoration event said the revolution is imminent.
I am telling you, we will never fail, we will give you twelve months with these mines not working, the revolution is imminent.— Joseph Mathunjwa, President of Amcu
Mathunjwa was delivering the keynote speech at the Marikana commemoration event where thousands of miners gathered to remember the 34 miners who were gunned down by police on this day in 2012.
Callers on the Eusebius McKaiser Show on the open line weighed in on Mathunjwa's stance about the revolution.
William, a caller, says Mathunjwa's rhetoric was a fact as he addressed issues that affected South Africans.
The revolution that he mentioned, was it a revolution of the communists or whatever, the answer is no, not the one of fighting.— William, caller
But which revolution was he referring to, he was referring to the one that the masses in their numbers as represented by those who managed to be there and those who were there to listen to him at that particular point?— William, caller
William adds that come 2019 elections, the masses will be the same ones who will go to the ballot boxes and remove the problem that people are experiencing.
Another caller, Lehlohonolo says the revolution started five years ago, and it was turning five this year.
That is the revolution my brother; we are going to punish the African National Congress (ANC) come 2019.— Lehlohonolo, caller
We want to make sure that we punish people for all those years that they had punished the black masses.— Lehlohonolo, caller
