A long time anti-apartheid campaigner has condemned the violence at the Marikana mine in South Africa, in which 34 men were shot dead and another 78 wounded by police on Thursday.
Arnold Stofile, who is South Africa's Ambassador to Germany, is in New Zealand for a conference on the centenary of the African National Congress.
He said on Sunday Morning the trouble stems from problems of race, class and divide and rule.
Mr Stofile said this is the very thing the ANC fought against.
President Joseph Zuma on Friday ordered an inquiry into the tragedy and visited some of the wounded in hospital.
Police insist they acted in self-defence. Two police officers were among 10 other people killed at Marikana before the tragedy on Thursday.
