15 November 2018 - NW2544
Waters, Mr M to ask the Minister of Labour
1. With reference to her reply to question 2167 on 31 October 2016, what were the findings of the follow up meeting of 30 November 2016? 2. Has the structural damage to the school been repaired; if not, what danger does the structural damage pose to pupils and teachers;? 3. Whether all the roof leaks have been repaired; if not, what number of classrooms are still affected by the leaking roofs?
Minister of Labour’s Response;
- At the disposal of the current management of the province, there is no record of the initial response to the 2016 enquiry. The current senior management started after the initial query and was not able to retrieve the original response. Notices were served on the school in June 2018 and a follow up inspection conducted in August 2018.
- The structural damage has not been repaired. The structural damages and the non-repairs pose a danger to both the learners and the staff.
- The roof does not seem to have been repaired and is still leaking, alternatively it is still not maintained as the whole asbestos block is affected.
Prosecution will be recommended to the NPA for non-compliance.
