The department of education seems like they always have scandals around how they spend public funds.
The department of education has built a state of the art guardhouse for the securities. The guardhouse was built at Promosa secondary school on Potchefstroom last year. It is believed that the guardhouse cost almost close to R500 000 to build while there has been some reports that last year the celing of one of the classroom fell while students were in the middle of their exam.
However the department spokesperson said that the guardhouse was a priority because the guards used to stay in a temporary structure.They had no proper housing.
According to the purchase order that was seen by the Citypress, it shows very well that the contractor had charged a hefty amount just to build a guardhouse. The amount that was seen is R486 000.
