'If Moerane commission doesn't recommend prosecution, it will be a waste'
KwaZulu-Natal Premier Willies Mchunu is expected to release a report on political killings in the province on Thursday.
At least 100 people have died in political violence that engulfed the province since 2011.
Community activist Vanessa Burger says if the report won't give recommendations on who should be prosecuted, then all the efforts would've been a waste of time and money.
She says the terms of reference of the Moerane Commission state that they have the power to recommend for the prosecution of those involved in these murders.
Why a decision has been made not to do so I can only presume because the ANC has found itself in a bit of a conundrum with this commission.Vanessa Burger, Community activist

Burger says she doesn't think it is the commission's fault not to make these recommendations but the political leadership lack of political will to solve problems.
