Mthethwa's application to suspend commission to be heard

Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa's application for an interdict against the Khayelitsha commission of inquiry into the conduct of police in Khayelitsha will be heard in the Western Cape High Court on Monday.

Last month, Mthethwa and other applicants filed papers in the High Court to have the commission temporarily suspended, pending a review of the decision to establish it.

Provincial premier Helen Zille set up the commission in August to probe allegations of police inefficiency in Khayelitsha, Cape Town.

Zille cited a breakdown of trust between Khayelitsha residents and the police as the reason for establishing the commission.

Headed by retired judge Catherine O'Regan and advocate Vusi Pikoli, the commission had been due to begin public hearings on November 12 and continue until December 14.

The commission has since been suspended pending the outcome of the court hearings.
