The Moerane Commission of Inquiry is expected to conclude around of hearings on Friday as it investigates the underlying causes of political killings in KwaZulu-Natal.
The Commission has heard from witnesses of how the police, politicians and hit men, are working together to allegedly murder and suppress opponents getting in the way of gaining money and power.
EWN reporter Ziyanda Ngcobo says the Commission also heard from a witness who testified earlier this week saying their life is under threat.
If your identity is known is not easy to ensure that your safety is not at risk.— Ziyanda Ngcobo, EWN reporter
Community activist Vanessa Burger sent an email to the commission claiming that a man who testified on Monday has been receiving death threats.
The man testified that the police have been collecting money from Glebelands residents to supply state issued weapons.
The man was followed from the hearing and this really begs the issue of security here at the commission.— Ziyanda Ngcobo, EWN reporter
The hit men who stay at Glebelands apparently know the identity of this witness and their lives are now under threat.— Ziyanda Ngcobo, EWN reporter
Ngcobo says there has not been a strong police presence at the commission throughout the week. She says there has been only a single police vehicle with one police officer.
The witness who asked to remain anonymous was also not escorted by police as he arrived nor when he left the commission.
The commissioners together with the media will be visiting the Glebelands Hostel later this afternoon.
