South African Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng has been named the latest "Guardian of Governance" for ethical leadership and adherence to good governance.

Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng says what happened in Marikana in the North West in August 2012 is a typical example of how some leaders handle problems in South Africa.

Mogoeng’s statement comes on the eve of the seventh anniversary of the Marikana massacre in which police gunned down 34 mineworkers who were participating in a protracted strike at the Lonmin platinum mine.

The incident happened after wage negotiations between management and unions reached a deadlocked.

The workers were demanding a R12 000 salary increase when the tragedy happened.

Mogoeng says, “What happened, Why? Could it have been avoided? Why wasn’t it avoided? Who was involved and what did we do to hold them accountable? Have we made it our business to make sure that everybody who was directly or indirectly involved in that tragic event was held accountable properly or have we deployed our wisdom to manage the truth in such a way as to shift blame to those who have very little to protect themselves with?”
