EWN reporter Ziyanda Ngcobo says the Moerane Commission is expected to shed light on the political killings in KZN.

Thursday is D-Day as the Moerane Commissions report is set to be released on political killings in KZN.

Over the past few years, the spate of political killings has increased to the point where a task team of approximately 126 individuals with various expertise and training was given as many resources as possible to end the killings and bring perpetrators to book.

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, EWN reporter Ziyanda Ngcobo says based on the report, there is an expectation that it will bear fruit, however, though there is some skepticism from some quarters.
