As I write this, South Africa sits in a peculiar space. Poised in a moment of rage over the massacre that has taken place in Marikana, but with barely any facts through which to channel that fury at someone. Tomorrow – because some imbecile thought this could wait – there is meant to be a press briefing, after which more information will be available, and we can begin to make sense of what happened. Can begin to find out who in the nation will bear the incandescent torrent of outrage bottling up tonight.
