​Political Killings a Concern – SAHRC

The SAHRC voices its concerns over recent political killings in the build-up to the 3 August 2016 local government elections

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) has voiced its concerns over recent political killings in the build-up to the 3 August 2016 local government elections.

The commission has also welcomed Police Minister, Nathi Nhleko's decision to form a special task team that will investigate politically linked killings around the country.

SAHRC spokesperson, Gail Smith, who says over the past five years there had been about 50 politically related killings, predominantly in KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga, warns that political turmoil and killings affect and violate not only the victims' right to life, but also the capacity of the State to deliver services.
