African National Congress presidential hopeful Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has been chased away from the site of the Marikana massacre in the North West.
It’s understood Dlamini-Zuma was planning to lay a wreath on the koppie where 34 miners were shot dead by police in 2012.
But a group of men, wearing Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) T-shirts chased her away.
Amcu's leader Joseph Mathunjwa says they were concerned about the way Dlamini-Zuma had approached the site.
“We advice that she rather approached the national office of Amcu and that office will take it up with branch structures and also communicate with the widows about her visit.”
The union has also indicated that the area where the miners were killed is not a political space.
