Two years after an alleged drag-racing incident involving Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye and Themba Tshabalala claimed the lives of four Soweto school pupils in 2010, the road where the accident happened is yet to see an upgrade.
In June 2010, former Infrastructure Development Member of the Executive Council (MEC) Faith Mazibuko promised that Mdlalose street would be made safe.
The Provincial Transport Department set aside R4,5 million for the project but so far nothing has been done.
Transport MEC Ismail Vadi apologised on Monday for the delay.
“It’s a simple failure on the part of my officials and they’re going to have to be accountable for it.”
“I give absolute assurance that the budget is there and a team will be on site this morning to ensure you that by the end of the financial year, this project will be well under way.”
