KwaZulu-Natal Premier, Willies Mchunu says he is pleased that the Moerane Commission has finally been concluded.

Mchunu received the final report of the Moerane Commission from it’s chairperson, Advocate Marumo Moerane on Tuesday.

Speaking on Morning Live he says all the issues were thoroughly investigated.

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

The commission was set up to investigate killings in the province.

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 organisations gave testimonies.

Mchunu says the recommendations can only be implemented after going the process of handover to the legisleture which should be done within 21 days.

Mchunu says the commission was very clear that their findings on the killings were not related to one party but to all the big political parties in the province.

He says the commission also emphasised that though the commision was for KZN, it paints a clear picture of what is going on in the whole country.

He says where the commission has raised issues within political parties, it is up to those political to take the recommendations and sort out their problems.
