CAPE TOWN - The Social Justice Coalition (SJC) is hoping Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko will provide clear plans and time frames regarding policing in Khayelitsha.

Nhleko has three days to respond to a memorandum by the SJC and Ndifun Ukwazi in which it demands he immediately implement the recommendations of the Khayelitsha Commission of Inquiry.

The SJC's Chumile Sali says the minister is yet to respond.

"We want a public statement on the demands. We want him to give us a timeline on when those issues will be addressed and when the conditions will be implemented."

The organisations delivered the memorandum during a march to Parliament last month.
