CAPE TOWN - A report on the state of policing in Khayelitsha will be handed over to the Western Cape Premier Helen Zille today.
She established a Commission of Inquiry in 2012 to investigate allegations of police inefficiency in the township.
It followed a spate of vigilante killings in the area.
The Khayelitsha commission began public hearings in January this year after the then Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa failed to stop from going ahead.
The commissioners heard testimonies from various witnesses, including Khayelitsha residents, who complained about inadequate policing in the area.
Top Saps officials also testified and explained that resources were strained and officers stationed in the township were overburdened.
Commissioners Kate O'Regan and Vusi Pikoli will hand in a report to the premier this afternoon.
Commissioners were interrogating over 500 police dockets, statements from around 50 experts and more than 200 affidavits from community members who made submissions.
