Police Minister wants those responsible for xenophobic attacks in KZN in jail

We apologise for the poor audio quality.

Minister of Police, Bheki Cele, says the security cluster will be in KwaZulu Natal on Monday to look into political killings.

President Cyril Ramaphosa visited the province following the recent spate of political killings including the death of African National Congress (ANC) activist Sifiso Cele who was murdered on the south coast in front of his family.

The security cluster will meet with the task team which has been working for almost a year without much results and find out what is their problem.
