Isa­iah Twala, an NUM shop stew­ard, was shot and hacked to death on the kop­pie, and the skull of a

cow was placed on his chest. Mean­while, Lon­min se­cu­rity staff were work­ing to iden­tify armed strik­ers who could be seen on

se­cu­rity videos. It emerged later that Cyril Ramaphosa had been send­ing emails to Lon­min of­fi­cials, and then po­lice and min­eral re­sources min­is­ters Nathi Mthethwa and Su­san Shabangu, re­spec­tively, about tak­ing “con­comi­tant ac­tion” against the strik­ing work­ers. Po­lice went to the kop­pie to ne­go­ti­ate with the strik­ing mine work­ers to

bring about a vol­un­tary lay­ing down of weapons.
