The United Democratic Movement (UDM) in KwaZulu-Natal welcomes the Premier’s tabling of the Moerane Commission’s report in the legislature, as well as his comments thereon. The UDM is however concerned that the Premier made no mention of, nor did he emphasise one of the Commission’s terms of reference, which was to;

“Ensure the successful investigation and prosecution of perpetrators”.

Given that we have not seen the report, we wonder if this is an innocent omission on the part of the Premier or is there just no recommendation whatsoever by the Commission?

If that is the case, the UDM in KwaZulu-Natal is of the view that the Commission did a shoddy job. People lost their lives and there must be consequences.
