Laying into security chief Dirk Botes, advocate Dali Mpofu said Lonmin's collusion with the police led to many of the miners' deaths.
Lonmin is accused of deliberately changing records to conceal that their security personnel had fired shots at strikers.
A Lonmin security officer has told the Farlam commission that security forces had been frustrated by the lack of police ahead of the Marikana strike.
A member of Lonmin's tactical response unit has told the Farlam commission that stopping the approximately 3 000 protesters was impossible.
One of the four suspects arrested in connection with the murder of a Samancor Chrome mine employee has also been implicated in Mr X’s testimony.
Had the Lonmin security guards observed a radio security warning they might never have confronted the enraged miners and suffered fatalities.
The testimony of Mr X has dealt with the 10 killings leading up to the Marikana massacre of 34 miners. The M&G spoke to their families this week.
A miner implicated by Mr X's testimony as one of those responsible for the death of police officers and security guards, has been killed.
A miner who is testifying at the Marikana commission says both the police and mining company Lonmin were innocent in the events at Marikana in 2012.
The police’s key witness refused to answer further questions after the miners’ advocate brought his mental and emotional state into question.
The Farlam commission has heard that police witness Mr X would be discarding muti, to follow the prescripts of Christianity.
Mr X on Thursday apologised to the families of the people he claims he had a hand in killing in the days leading up to the Marikana massacre.
Dali Mpofu has accused Nathi Mthethwa of bowing to political pressure and lying to the Farlam commission, saying he should be charged with murder.
While accepting responsibility for police operations on August 16 2012, the former police minister pointed out he wasn’t personally to blame.
The fatal shooting of 34 people during the Marikana strike has no place in a modern South Africa, according to former police minister Nathi Mthethwa.
As former police minister Nathi Mthethwa is set to begin his testimony at the Marikana commission, we focus on some questions he'll have to answer.
Advocate Dali Mpofu is expected to fire accusations at former police minister Nathi Mthethwa that he sparked the Marikana massacre.
The Marikana Commission has once again adjourned before hearing the end of Mr X's testimony.
Mr X, testifying at the Marikana Commission, claims that Amcu president Joseph Mathunjwa told some strikers to kill NUM president Senzeni Zokwana.
