Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa has moved to clarify his recent apology for his role in the Marikana massacre.
Answering questions in the national assembly this afternoon, Ramaphosa told Members of Parliament (MPs) that he's prepared to visit the widows of the victims.
On the question from the Economic Freedom Fighters' Floyd Shivambu for the deputy president to explain to whom he was apologising and what he was apologising for, Ramaphosa said his apology was for the inappropriate language he used in e-mails.
“The intervention I was seeking to make was to stop further killings from happening.”
Ramaphosa says he's prepared to confront his actions.
“As a leader person, I know I have to be accountable for what I do and what I say.”
Ramaphosa said he would take guidance from Winnie Madikizela-Mandela to visit Marikana and families of the 44 people killed.
