CPT old age home in financial trouble
The Kensington home owes the city of Cape Town and SARS nearly R800k.
CAPE TOWN - Social Development MEC Albert Fritz said he intends to check up to see how regularly department officials monitor a local old age home in dire straits.
The Kensington facility is in severe financial trouble.
The home owes the city of Cape Town and SARS nearly R800, 000.
Recently the home had its electricity disconnected due to outstanding municipal bills.
Fritz said he will be looking into the matter.
"The digits will also clarify that we give Kensington R2,1 million a year and in January/ February we gave close to R160, 000 for infrastructure improvement."
