JOHANNESBURG - The Department of Labuur is expected to have its first meeting regarding an inquiry into the collapsed of a Meyersdal Eco Estate double-storey house, which claimed the lives of seven construction workers.
Parts of the house caved in last week and a preliminary investigation has found that the renovations were illegal.
The inquiry is expected to meet with various parties involved in the rebuild, to determine the terms of reference and who will be taking part.
The department's Mokgadi Pela says surviving workers might also be called to testify.
"Recommendations will be made and obviously once negligence has been established I am sure the commission will then make recommendations for prosecution. Those recommendations will then be forwarded to the relevant authorities."
