The Khayelitsha Commission of Inquiry is expected to resume its work during the month of February.
The Commission was established in August last year by Western Cape Premier Helen Zille to investigate police inefficiency in Khayelitsha.
The Commission was stopped after Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa had filed an interdict against it.
The Commission has asked for an extension of the deadline.
Premier spokesperson Zak Mbhele said the Premier received a request from the Commission, to extend the deadline of its terms reference from the end of February to August so that there may be more time for public hearings.
“Originally R6.5million had been allocated as a maximum budget of the Commission over a six month period from August last year to February” Mbhele said.
Mbhele added that the extension needs to be reviewed whether it can still be accommodated within the budget.
