The minister has appointed a new inter-ministerial task team set up to investigate political killings in KwaZulu Natal.

Police Minister Bheki Cele has provided a progress report on the inter-ministerial task team set up to investigate political killings in KwaZulu Natal.

Cele held a briefing at their headquarters in Durban alongside national police commissioner Khehla Sithole and KZN prosecutions boss Moipone Noko to share an update since the team's appointment in May.

The minister explains why he has had to set up a completely new task team.

We sat down, had an assessment and realised we have to have changes. There was less coordination, less commitment, less outcomes and results.

Bheki Cele, Police Minister

Only eight members from the previous team have been absorbed into the new group.

There are cases that they [the eight] were handling and their cases seems to be online and we realise we may be disturbing those cases if we remove them from there.

Bheki Cele, Police Minister
