The South African Communist Party in the Eastern Cape said the quality
of scholar transport in the province needs to be relooked.
is after a scholar transport hired by the Department of Transport was involved
in an accident which left five children dead and several injured.
The cause of the accident is brake failure.
Provincial Spokesperson Siyabonga Mdodi explained that there is a need for
monitoring and accountability of the scholar transport to be the primary
responsibility of the government and not to be outsourced to selfish tender
“Because if this function of monitoring
accountability continues to be outsourced, then the corruption network that
exists between some corrupt government officials and some tender premiers will
not be isolated and it won’t be defeated,” added Mdodi.
He adds that at the end those who are going
to suffer are children and the families.
