LIVE: Khayelitsha Commission of Inquiry
CAPE TOWN – The final report of the commission of inquiry into policing in Khayelitsha, Cape Town was handed over on Monday.
The commissioners, former Constitutional Court justice Kate O’Regan and advocate Vusi Pikoli, presented the report to Western Cape premier Helen Zille and community safety MEC Dan Plato.
The commission, which sat earlier this year, was established by Zille two years ago. Public hearings concluded in May after parties made their final oral submissions.
The commission was mandated to investigate alleged inefficiency at three police stations in Khayelitsha, as well as other police units in the area.
It was further tasked with investigating an alleged breakdown in relations between Khayelitsha residents and police officers.
