Govt Denies Claims That It Ignored Motlanthe Commission Report

The government has denied claims that it has ignored the recommendations made by the Motlanthe Commission of Inquiry.

The Commission recommended among other things, that the government identifies and punishes the soldiers who killed civilians in cold blood as well as compensating the victims of the shootings.

Permanent secretary in the Ministry of Justice Virginia Mabiza had this to say:

Remember, the President set a special task force of ministers to deal with these issues and we are already at an advanced level of dealing with these matters, including compensation of victims, security sector reforms and multi-party dialogue, which is already being implemented.

We have already started with the realignment of laws, and other issues have been discussed at the task force. You should know that things like compensation involve mobilising resources and this is why we have roped in the Ministry of Finance to assist us, but work is being done and the report has not been dumped.
