The Democratic Alliance has demanded answers from Gauteng education MEC Panyaza Lesufi on the alleged R90 million that was allocated for the construction of Noordgesig Primary School in Soweto.
The party claims that the construction was supposed to begin earlier this month at the Primary school, but there’s not a brick in sight.
In a statement sent to the media, DA’s Gauteng shadow MEC for education Khume Ramulifho claimed that the construction at the school was supposed to start this month, but nothing had happened.
Ramulifho said in a statement that “R90 million was set aside to fix the
school, which has remained desolate for over six years.”
“Millions of rands have been budgeted for the renovation of the school since the 2010/11 financial year.”
“In November 2014, a contractor was awarded a R17.8 million tender to fix the school,” said Ramulifho.
The Gauteng department of education has not yet responded to the queries.
