Eff ective intelligence can solve political killings, says former premier

Former KZN premier Willies Mchunu has called for stronger intelligence capacity to effectively deal with political killings in the province.

Of the latest spate of killings, Mchunu said that it sounds like the same as when he was premier and he was pressured and agreed that a drastic intervention such as the Moerane Commission of Inquiry into Political Killings was needed.He said that for some time there had been interventions by political parties and security agencies, however, the contest for local government in the province remained the biggest problem area.

“In that sense there were directives that were supposed to have been followed and it wasn’t just the provincial government or local government or just the security forces that had a role to play to deal with this matter, there were many other state departments that were supposed to be involved.

It also included a recommendation for civil society’s participation in dealing with this phenomenon,” Mchunu said.He cited the notorious Glebelands Hostel as an example of how there had even been allegations against police officers, some of whom lived in the hostel’s residence, of being perpetrators on the violence.

He called for a stronger capacity in the country’s intelligence services adding that without proper intelligence security there cannot be proper security. Read more: IOL News »
