The Motsuenyane Commission of Inquiry was appointed by the President of the African National Congress of South Africa (ANC), Dr. Nelson Mandela, to investigate allegations of human rights abuses and alleged disappearances among its members. Its terms of reference were dated the 12th January, 1993. This is a historic event insofar as it is the first time that a liberation movement has engaged an independent commission to review allegations that its members violated human rights guarantees within its ranks.
