R4.7m to build toilets that don’t work

A block of toilets built for pupils at a rural school in the Northern Cape cost an exorbitant R4.7 million – and they don’t work.

The building, which contains 14 unusable toilets, is just one of many examples of how construction and consulting companies are charging the provincial education department up to four times what they should to build school infrastructure.

Documents in City Press’ possession reveal that consulting firms – including architects, engineers and quantity surveyors – were paid R45 million in two years.
