Khayelitsha Commission to resume next month

We heard from Amanda Dissel - Secretary for the Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of Police Inefficiency and Ineffectiveness in Khayelitsha and a Breakdown in Relations between the Community and the Police. We were talking about their preliminary hearing taking place next month. The commission will hold a preliminary sitting next month with further public sittings during January, February and March 2014 to avoid further setbacks after it was delayed for a year by litigation initiated by the Minister of Police and several other applicants. The preliminary sitting aims to create awareness about the commission and hopes to encourage people to contact the commission if they have any information or experience regarding the police in Khayelitsha. Their office will be open daily until November 29th, 2013 between 09h00AM and 13h00PM for members of the community to make statements to Commission staff relating to policing in the area. The preliminary sitting is happening on Wednesday November 13th, 2013 at Lookout Hall, Spine Road, Ilitha Park in Khayelitsha from 10h00AM. For further information you can the commission on (021) 839 2102 or send an email to info@khayelitshacommission.org.za alternatively visit www.khayelitshacommission.org.za
