Moerane Commission report handed to KZN premier
THE findings and recommendations of the Moerane Commission, which probed the causes and circumstances surrounding political killings in KwaZulu-Natal, will soon be released to the public.
Handing over the report to Premier Willies Mchunu this week, the head of the commission, advocate Marumo Moerane, said the 424-page report contained very specific recommendations from the evidence of more than 60 witnesses.
The commission was established in 2016 to probe political violence and killings in KwaZulu-Natal since 2011.
In terms of the province’s Commissions Act, the premier must submit the report to the provincial legislature 21 days after it has been presented to him. Once the relevant portfolio committee has commented, the premier has 21 days to release the report to the public.
