    The South African government has set up an inquiry to investigate what activists call political murders in KwaZulu Natal province. More than 90 people have been killed in and around the Glebelands Hostel since 2014, and yet no arrests have been made in connection with the deaths.

    There are also concerns the violence could escalate when the race to succeed President Jacob Zuma as party leader intensifies.
