Daily News - - NEWS - KAILENE PIL­LAY

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.
