CAPE TOWN - Western Cape Premier Helen Zille is confident the Khayelitsha Commission of Inquiry's findings will be implemented with the help of a task team.

Zille established the commission to investigate allegations of police inefficiencies in Khayelitsha following a rise in vigilante killings.

Most of the commission's recommendations have apparently still not been put in place, a year after its conclusion.

Zille said a safer Khayelitsha could be one signature away.

"Nothing that involves the police can be done without the signature of the minister in terms of the Constitution and the law."

She said the task team of national and provincial officials will meet in two weeks time.

Zille she is confident it will find ways to implement the commission's recommendations aimed at improving policing in Khayelitsha.

Yesterday, she was accused of using the commission to "secure votes".

She was criticised by community members during a feedback session in the township.
