ANC in Western Cape slams cost of police probe commission
04 October 2012
Commissioners appointed by Western Cape Premier Helen Zille to investigate policing in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, come at a cost of 51-thousand-Rands for each day's work.
The Premier’s spokesperson Zak Mbhele says this is the overall cost for two commissioners, two advocates and a commission secretary who will probe the alleged breakdown in trust between the community and police.
According to Mbhele the figure is well within the guidelines from Treasury for paying commissions.
Western Cape ANC provincial legislature member Pierre Uys regards the amount as very expensive and completely unnecessary.
