JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Infrastructure Development MEC Jacob Mamabolo says the deadline for a private law firm to hand over a report into its investigation of the cause of the roof collapse at the Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital in Johannesburg is close of business on Friday.

Five people were injured in the structural collapse earlier this month.

Mamabolo was due to receive the report from Adams and Adams last Friday.

The final report into a roof collapse at the Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital is expected to arrive at Mamabolo’s offices in Johannesburg by 5pm on Friday.

Mamabolo says he will be in a position to share the contents of the report sometime next week.

He had granted a week extension to the final report into the roof collapse after one of the affected parties requested an opportunity to make submissions.

He says he decided to grant the request to give the party involved an opportunity to explain their side of the story.
