A multimillion-rand car wash project owned by the city of Tshwane which was meant to create jobs for the youth of Mamelodi and invigorate the economy of the township, has descended into dilapidation.

that the Reitiretse integrated vehicle washing facility in Mamelodi west has been stripped by criminals, before it even opened its doors.When Sowetan visited the facility on Thursday, the structures had lost their roofs and door frames, while the toilet block has been stripped of the toilet seats and basins. The windows and other fittings had been vandalised.

Located near Mamelodi's major thoroughfare, Tsamaya Drive, the project was meant to guarantee 50 direct jobs in its first year of operating, as it grew to add other businesses such as a shisanyama and shops. “A co-operative of township car washers was established and operated the car wash until it was damaged by storms and heavy rains,” Mashigo said.Mashigo said the city was “discussing with the Gauteng department of economic development, environment and agriculture to resuscitate all township projects including the [Mamelodi] car wash”.But some Mamelodi residents are sceptical.

Heaven only knows. How many houses can 6.6m built, or proper projects that can create jobs. People eat money and lie to us. Surely we South Africans are fools

They spent R600k on a car wash and then claim to have spent 6.6m

How to loot 101 - car wash for 6m? And worse still this is meant to sustain the community and this is what we do? Haai black nation let's just admit - we need an intervention...

Who funds shit like this Dom

I know of a R24m one that was never even used. Come and see what it looks like🤔. Pigsty putting it mildly.

The culture If they can't steal it they break it, if they can't break it they burn it. Viva 'My Culture' Viva
