The Social Justice Coalition today said it is disappointed at the constant delay into the Khayelitsha Commission of Inquiry. 

Last week a man was beaten and burned to death in Khayelitsha and on Sunday a 25-year-old man was beaten and burnt to death and his body was found in a communal toilet by police.

Police Spokesperson Andre Traut said no one has been arrested as yet for these killings.

The commission was established by Premier Helen Zille after residents on Khayelitsha said policing in the area is not effective. 

The Commission was halted when Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa challenged it in court.

The SJC’s Phumeza Mlungwana said it is so sad that the Minister can go to as far as taking the commission to court, to ensure that it does not do its work.

Mlungwana added that the commission was starting to bring hope to the people of Khayelitsha, to see something being done about crime.
