DA probes Hopetown school tender irregularities

The Democratic Alliance (DA) in the Northern Cape is probing the alleged re-awarding of a tender for a failed school construction project to the very company that previously absconded from the project, letting it go to ruin. See pics hereherehere and here.

Based on information received by the DA, it appears that the school hall at Steynville High School in Hopetown, which only got as far as a metal frame with a roof, was left to stand for two years without being completed. As a result, the structure is visibly rusted due to exposure to the elements and requires a full frame replacement before the project can proceed.

Given the blatant inability of the former contractor to complete this project, it is mind-blowing that government could even consider re-awarding a new tender for the rectification of the work already done and the completion of the project, that should have been finished long ago, to the offending company.
