In the Eastern Cape region of South Africa, political figures in the Enoch Mgijima Municipality (councillors) who supervised the construction and inauguration of the contentious 15 million rand Lessyton Sports Field are in hot water.
This comes after images of the poorly built sports field sparked outrage on social media this week. Thousands of individuals questioned its exorbitant pricing. The athletic track is marked with fading white paint, and there are no operational sanitary facilities or electricity on the sports field. For spectators, it also contains roofless metal stands that may be removed.
However, the ANC's provincial executive committee (PEC) has established a committee to investigate the outrageous sport center stating that if the inquiry uncovered any wrongdoing, the provincial government would move swiftly to combat corruption, mismanagement, and waste of public funds, ensuring that public funds were spent on the services that were required.
Take a look at some pictures of the stadium below:
