A tender of R77m was awarded to a private contractor; construction started in 2014 and the project was to be completed in October 2016.

A R77m project to rebuild a Uitenhage school has been stalled since 2018, apparently because the Eastern Cape department of education is not paying the bills.

Bags of cement, floor tiles, bricks and other building materials are strewn around the grounds of Jubilee Park Primary School in Gerald Smith township in Uitenhage. Children balance on the piles of tiles and sit on the bricks stacked under black plastic sheeting. Weeds are growing along the walls. The school in ward 48, which is dominated by a sea of shacks, accommodates 1,200 pupils from grade R to grade 7. In 2013, part of the school was burnt down. The Eastern Cape department of education appointed the Eastern Cape department of public works as its implementing agent to rebuild the school.

Easy answer R77 million minus R10 million for the contractor the other R67 million is to pay back hands and all those who deserve their cut of the loot. Not forgetting the BEE contractor only does R1 million worth of work and steals the R9 million. It's the African way. The best of BEE South Africans aren't angry enough to demand change, until citizens take it upon themselves to demand change by removing corrupt government officials and not waiting for political parties for solutions.Any suspicious individuals with checked past isn't worth serving in government

But the article clearly states that A R77m project to rebuild a Uitenhage school has been stalled since 2018, apparently because the Eastern Cape department of education is not paying the bills. So its the departments fault and not the contractor mos. We really on our own big time here 🤣 Where is Panyaza Hendrik Lesufi? Chasing political agendas What about the children

ANC buddies again Is this quote with pit toilets and running water but without fittings and fixtures ? Wait until the coffers are empty and the social grants cannot be disbursed, all of them would escaped to other functioning western countries Polly12346 Nothing surprising!! As with hundreds of other projects, the ANC acolytes took the money & ran. State capture deeper than what we think. Will SA ever be rid of it, doubt it.

Sadly, the only bit that surprises me is the that the cement, floor tiles, bricks & building materials haven’t already been stolen... True, however that cement is useless now...

ShashikaNaidoo Who has been charged? 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 Lol typical An ANC cadre got the tender, but the lure of Porsche, Range Rover, Lamborghini, Camps Bay apartment was too strong. MYANC 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 keep voting for it. There are clowns who are hounding Pravin to account and yet some ministries are doing as they please. Selective accountability.

c_kumalo Lesufi ASK YOURSELF WHO WAS HANDED THE RMILLIONS? The taxpayers are stolen into debt whilst greedy politicians enjoy their lavish lifestyles, homes, holidays and kids educated in the best PrivateWhiteOwnedSchools And 12million dont hve homes jobs let alone food😢 MasterBuilders3

You get the government you vote for so suck it up and enjoy. Department of Education and Department of Health are the worst culprits when it comes to non paying or delaying paying service providers invoices. We are going in circles, no accountability none wat so f”’$k. We drank it and took our side chicks out. Left some for bail and court cases and to dampening the noisy ones...don’t like your tone Sowetan. On behalf of the tender team
