Elements within the police’s elite political killings task team now find themselves in the crosshairs of the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) after a regional ANC chairperson in KwaZulu-Natal accused unit members of trying to pin a murder on him.

Police minister Bheki Cele has also been drawn into the probe, with allegations that his crack team of investigators has been co-opted to settle political scores.
