“The provincial investigative inquiry forms part of ongoing investigations of numerous complaints into allegations that the infrastructure of various schools in the North West does not comply with the relevant legislation, policies, and standards. In particular, the complaints raise allegations concerning deteriorating buildings, shortage of classrooms, asbestos roofing, lack of access to sufficient water and basic sanitation.
“The MEC, head of department and the administrator will be in attendance and make submissions on behalf of the Department of Education,” the SAHRC said.
