Incomplete school construction projects flagged by Gauteng MPL


An allegedly abandoned construction project to build Nancefield Primary School in Eldorado Park and incomplete work at a Roodepoort school are depriving pupils of access to conducive learning and teaching environments.

This is according to DA member of the Gauteng legislature Nkhumeni Ramulifho, who conducted an oversight visit on Tuesday to the Nancefield and Braamfischer primary schools. He discovered construction projects meant to be finished by now are incomplete. 

“Nancefield Primary pupils continue to be taught in old and dilapidated mobile classrooms as a contractor has abandoned the project of building their new brick-and-mortar school,” he said.

At Braamfischer, pupils and teachers are using brick-and-mortar classrooms but the school hall is in the foundation phase and the sporting facility is incomplete.

“According to the contractor, construction will only be completed in March next year.”
