Zille denies accusations against her
29 August 2012
Western Cape Premier Helen Zille has denied accusations by Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa that she had not informed him of her plans to institute a commission of inquiry into the apparent breakdown in relations between the residents of Khayelitsha and the police in the area.
She says she had repeatedly forwarded complaints to his office, along with requests for comment.
Zille adds that at least 13 people in the Cape Town township have lost their lives in mob justice.
She says this is allegedly as a result of police inefficiencies.
