The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) says it will provide legal assistance to Thabiso Zulu.
Zulu is among the whistleblowers in the Sindiso Magaqa murder case.
He was shot and wounded in October while returning from a meeting in Pietermaritzburg.
SAHRC CEO Tseliso Thipanyane says Zulu approached the commission after many attempts to get protection.
As the Human Rights Commission, upon assessment, we said certainly the right to life is affected and we as the Human Rights Commission have a mandate to protect the human rights of all South Africans.— Tseliso Thipanyane, CEO - SAHRC
