Remember the R15 million Lesseyton Sports facilities near Komani in the Eastern Cape? eNCA senior reporter, Aviwe Mtila was in Komani yesterday to follow up on the state of the facilities.
The stadium appeared to be unused, unstable and in disrepair. This sports facility allegedly cost a whopping 15-million-rand of taxpayers money to construct. R15 million Rand of taxpayers money went to facilities which do not appear to be used.
The facilities were unveiled more than 5 months ago by the Enoch Mgijima Local Municipality. Soon after the unveiling, pictures of the unveiling began to circulate on social media and many people questioned whether what had been unveiled truly reflects the alleged price tag of R15 million Rand.
A preliminary report has concluded the procurement process and the awarding of the tender was marred by numerous irregularities.
