Deadly Force Not Authorized

Anti-police sentiment spread quickly following the killings. On Aug. 21, 2012, elected officials announced the launch of an inquiry into who authorized the use of live ammunition at the mine.

"Government did not plan to have anyone killed," President Zuma said during his visit to the mine on Aug. 22, 2012.
