Molefi Osiel Ntsoele (40) was from Ha Tebese, Semonkong, Maseru Lesotho. He began working for Lonmin around 2007.

On 16 August 2012 Mr Ntsoele was killed at scene 2, shot once in the back by the police.

He left behind his wife and 4 children, including 3 who are still attending school. He was also financially supporting his elderly mother and his mother-in-law.

According to his wife, Matsepang Ntsoele,"I cannot even explain the pain I am going through. I would not wish it to befall anyone. There is a hole that has been left in my life. Even if this was God's will I cannot find a way to understand how and why this came to happen. I have lost interest in everything. I am always thinking about him and what happened to him and the pain is unbearable."
