Limpopo water project faces forensic investigation

admin No Comments


There will be a forensic investigation into the multi-billion rand Nandoni-Nsami Bulk Water Pipeline Project in Limpopo after Water and Sanitation Minister Gugile Nkwinti announced it on Saturday.

The project, which started in 2014, was meant to supply the water-strapped Giyani area in the province’s north-east.

However, construction of the pipeline has been marred by several work stoppages and court cases since inception.

Villages in the Giyani area still do not have running water.

Nkwinti says the investigation will look into where the R3.5 billion spent on the project thus far has gone.

He says: “R3.5 billion is gone and you are telling me you don’t have water, this tells you there is a problem. There will have to be a forensic investigation.”

“When I look at the budget spent and the what it has done in terms of value for money there is a disjuncture,” adds Nkwinti.
