Now there's a R1 million investigation

The City of Cape Town is to spend R1 million investigating why sections of its stadium’s roof appear to be coming loose, the Cape Times reported on Monday.

During a routine inspection a year ago, a few bolts were found to have failed, even though the roof was designed to withstand strong south-easterly winds.

Mayoral committee member Grant Pascoe guaranteed the safety of the stadium. He told the newspaper that Arup Consulting Engineers had been appointed for R1 million to conduct an independent professional review.

The stadium has cost ratepayers R44.6 million over the last financial year.

Decibels: For once I agree with you. Nop investigation is necessary. The construction company should be held to their guarantee. My reading, of course, is that someone is getting a nice kickback from M & R in order to deflect the attention.

Prior to the world, Zille & De Lille were running around with allegation of corruption deals during the building of world cup stadiums. Shortly after da won Western Cape and they were involved, all allegation of corruption fell away, media is silence.

Capetown stadium happenned to be the most expensive. If they did not get a slice on corruption deals, they would be calling for investigation in the building of world cup stadia gate, soccer world cup gate scandal.
