It is alleged that Khato civil Construction Company has abandoned the trenches at Homu village and the project was cost R3 billion bulk water project.

The DA premier candidate Jacque Smalle said the African National Congress (ANC) must take full responsibility of the incomplete project.

“This is an example of the ANC government inability to execute its service delivery mandate due to financial mismanagement and alleged corruption,” he said.

Smalle said the project came to halt when the department of water and sanitation under Mokonyane failed to make payment to contractors.

Chief executive officer (CEO), Khato civil Construction Company has confirmed that there has been no maintenance on the safe guarding of the pipe lines since September last year.

He said the company has pulled out from the site due to payment dispute with the employer.

Limpopo police spokesperson colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said inquest docket is being investigated and further information would be released at a later stage.

Colonel said his department is appealing to all construction company and their workers to ensure they close off all trenches before they leave the construction site.
