This after the NPA this week dropped the charges against Harry Gwala mayor Mluleki Ndobe - whom the team last weekend arrested for the murder of ANC Youth League leader, Sindiso Magaqa. 

Speaking at a press briefing in Durban yesterday, the party's provincial secretary-general, Mdumiseni Ntuli acknowledged there were concerns.

"Irrespective of whether they are members or leaders of the ANC - if you go and arrest a person and seven days later say you do not have evidence to proceed with the case - it obviously raises questions about the extent to which the decision to arrest in the first place was informed by what should be guiding those who are involved in the process."

But he says these questions aside, the task team's made a number of arrests and that the party's happy with their work so far.

"We believe the work of the police has been quite good. There a few of our comrades. We believe that a great deal of work has been done, but more work still needs to be done."
