Parly committee to meet with Ipid over another Glebelands murder
Committee chair François Beukman says they have met with witnesses who appeared before the Moerane Commission of inquiry.
DURBAN – Parliament’s Police Portfolio Committee will be meeting with the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) in KwaZulu-Natal on Friday morning following yet another killing at the infamous Glebelands Hostel.
A 30-year-old woman was shot and killed in her room on Thursday night.
The committee has been in the province all week conducting site visits and speaking to various police station commanders.
Last month, the Moerane Commission of Inquiry investigating political killings in KwaZulu-Natal heard how the Ipid office is dysfunctional and hasn’t held corrupt officers accountable.

Committee chairperson François Beukman says they have met with witnesses who appeared before the Moerane Commission of Inquiry.
“They also again highlighted dysfunctionality of Ipid office in KZN and also that there’s no responses to follow ups.”
Earlier, witnesses told the commission that cops are involved in corrupt activities and supply weapons to hitmen living at Glebelands.
Today, officials from the Parliamentary committee will also receive feedback from acting Hawks head Yolisa Matakata on the break in at the agency’s offices last month.
