(a). On what date last has each building under the care of the Iziko Museums of South Africa been painted and (b) how regularly does the five-year plan suggest that the specified buildings should be painted?


a) The exterior of the Iziko Koopmans de Wet Museum was painted in 2010, the Iziko Slave Lodge was painted in February 2020 and the façade of the Bo-Kaap Museum was painted in October 2020. The Custodian (DPWI) of state-owned buildings funded only the painting of the exterior of the Iziko Slave Lodge and did not fund the painting of any other buildings over the past ten years.

b) The Five-year Conservation and Maintenance Plan states that the paint and decorative finishes of the external walls require a complete repaint every five years. The external woodwork should be repainted every three to five years.
