MOERANE COMMISSION FINDS KILLINGS IN KZN PROVINCE RELATED TO ALL POLITICAL PARTIES

JOHANNESBURG-- The Moerane Commission, set up by South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal Province to probe a spate of killings in KZN has concluded that the killings were not related to any one party but to all major political parties in the province.

KwaZulu-Natal Premier Willies Mchunu, who received the report on Tuesday, says the commission also emphasised that although the commision was established for KZN, it paints a clear picture of what is going on in the whole country.

Mchunu, who received the final report of the Commission from it's chairperson, Advocate Marumo Moerane, told the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) Wednesday that he was happy the commission had completed its work and that all the issues were thoroughly investigated.

The findings cannot be disputed by anybody. It is now our responsibility to make sure that the recommendations are implemented.

Established in 2016, the Moerane Commission had its work cut out for it. It relied on witnesses to determine if murders in KwaZulu-Natal were politically motivated. Police, individuals, political parties and civic organizations provided testimonies.

Mchunu said the recommendations can only be implemented after the process of itshandover to the legislature which should be done within 21 days.

He said the commission had also raised issues within political parties, it is up to those political to take the recommendations and sort out their problems.
