Andries Ntsenyeho (42) was from Sasolburg in the Free State. He had worked for Lonmin for a year and was one of the leaders of the strike.
On 16 August 2012 Andries died at scene 1 after being shot three times by the police, in the neck and in both thighs.
He was the sole breadwinner in his family and left behind his wife and five children.
According to his sister, Lebohang Ntsenyeho, “His deepest desire was for his children to go to University. Now his oldest son, Thabang, will have to put his studies on hold to find a job in order to provide for his family.”
