President Jacob Zuma has, in terms of section 1 of the Commissions Act, 1947, amended, the Terms of Reference of the Commission of Inquiry into the tragic incidents at or near the area commonly known as the Marikana Mine, in Rustenburg, in the North West Province, South Africa, on or about Saturday 11 August to Thursday 16 August 2012, by extending, with effect from 30 April 2014, the term of the Commission to 31 July 2014.

The Commission was expected to complete its investigation on 30 April 2014.

After engagement between the President, the Chairperson of the Commission and the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development, it became evident that the Commission would not be able to complete its investigation by 30 April 2014, hence the President decided to extend the term of the Commission.
