The Western Cape Provincial Government on Monday welcomed the Western Cape High Court's ruling on the Khayelitsha Commission of Inquiry.

Premier Helen Zille established the commission in August to investigate allegations of police inefficiencies in the township.

This followed several incidents of mob justice in the area but Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa went to court to stop it from going ahead.

The case was heard before three high court judges.

Premier’s spokespersom Zak Mbhele said they are delighted about the court`s decision.

Meanwhile, Minister Mthethwa Spokesperson Zweli Mnisi said they will be consulting their legal team before embarking on any further action regarding the outcome of the court’s ruling.

Mthethwa last year argued that Zille's decision to appoint the commission would have an impact on the independence of the SA Police Service.

Mnisi adds that at this point in time they are guided by the legal team and a decision will be taken from there.
