The name of the man in the green blanket was Mgcineni Noki. He was aged 30, and known to his family and friends as Mambush. This is his story. It may also stand as part of the story of what has happened in South Africa since apartheid was voted into the dustbin of history 21 years ago.
Nick Davies uncovers the story of "the man in the green blanket", who died trying to broker peace, and reveals the complicity of the powers that be.

Thank you for this article. Reading this made me cry. Those poor people didnt deserve what they got. Im seating here trying to think exactly what will I do with a salary of R5000 per month. Even the R 12 500.00 they were asking for is too little to give a person a decent chance at a proper life.

I whole heartedly agree with what the Amcu leader said to the strikers "“Comrades, the life of a black person in Africa is so cheap … They will kill us, they will finish us and then they will replace us and continue to pay wages that cannot change black people’s lives. That would mean we were defeated and that the capitalists will win. But we have another way. We urge you – brothers, sisters, men – I am kneeling down – coming to you as nothing. Let us stop this bloodshed that the NUM allowed this employer to let flow. We do not want bloodshed!”

Thank you again. They didnt die for nothing and we shall never forget the man with a green blanket.
