Cape Town - The Khayelitsha Commission of Inquiry will hear final argument this week about allegations of police inefficiency and a breakdown in relations between the police and the community.

Commission secretary Amanda Dissel said on Wednesday retired Judge Kate O'Regan would chair the final sitting at Lookout Hill, Cape Town, on Thursday.

The sitting would be attended by representatives of the province, its community safety department, the City of Cape Town, the police, and the complainant the NGO Social Justice Coalition (SJC).

"The parties will present their conclusions based on the evidence that has been led before the commission, as well as their recommendations for what they think the commission should consider in its final report," she said.

O'Regan and Advocate Vusi Pikoli must compile a written report of their findings and recommendations on how issues can be alleviated or remedied, and submit it to Western Cape Premier Helen Zille by 11 July.

Zille set up the commission after the SJC complained that police inefficiency was the reason mob killings were becoming more prevalent in the area.

It held extensive public hearings between 2012 and the beginning of May, and conducted inspections in loco over four days.

Dissel said the commission had received and perused thousands of police documents, including around 500 dockets.

It had also received more than 200 affidavits from residents and people affected by policing in the area, and over 50 reports by experts.
