The commissions Javu Baloyi says theyve been wanting the facts before they could say anything.
The commission did not want to jump and react to the issues without having facts. We have been following it from the North West, we have an office there, and our office in Cape Town told us that now is the right time to talk about this issue. The ANC is not saying anything about it and the city must enter the terrain.
