The Democratic Alliance say it
is concerned by the public funds, being mismanaged by the Department of Human
This after special audit found over R700 million unspent on
building toilets for the poor.
DA’s David Ross said the
department of human settlements failed to spend over R700 million allocated
funds, showing complete disregard for the 2.6 million households that still do
not have access to basic sanitation services.
David Ross said this is all
about the non-compliance with the laws and regulations and also with regards to
the implications with regards of irregular expenditure.
“It’s very unfortunate that
this is the situation where people area left in the lurch that really needs
sanitation. We will call the officials in the departments and the people involved
in the mismanagement of this fund to explain and see that there’s consequences
for the misuse of public funds.” said Ross
