ANC must come clean to Moerane Commission – Dean Macpherson

DA MP says party must disclose what it knows about killings, even if it implicates senior leaders

DA welcomes confirmation that the ANC will appear before Moerane Commission of Inquiry

30 August 2017

The Democratic Alliance welcomes the news that the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal has finally broken its silence and will testify before the Moerane Commission of Inquiry into political killings.

ANC Spokesperson, Mdumiseni Ntuli, has confirmed the party was “preparing to appear before the commission”.

I will now write to KZN ANC Chairperson, Sihle Zikalala, requesting him to commit to a time and date for the ANC to appear before the Commission, as well as urge him to disclose all knowledge that he and his party may have regarding political murders in the province, even if it results in implicating senior leaders in the ANC.

Anything short of this would be disingenuous and withholding the truth from the public.

After losing so many councillors in KZN as a result of ANC factional battles, it would be extraordinary if they did not provide all relevant details to the commission.

The DA is committed to seeking justice for all those that have been killed as a result of political violence and trying to stop corruption in KZN.
