Mogodumo’s offices in a dilapidated condition


Employees stationed at the Mogodumo Circuit Office in Lebowakgomo are forced to relieve themselves in bushes behind the buildings. This is because their office buildings have no running. The buildings are also without electricity 

The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Limpopo said they will request the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) to investigate the working conditions at the Circuit.

“It is very concerning and unacceptable that the employees at this office are subjected to a work environment which consists of dilapidated buildings, without water or electricity, and employees must relieve themselves in bushes behind the buildings. The office is forced to close early daily because of this undesirable situation.

“These are unacceptable working conditions and strip away the dignity of the professionals that we entrust to oversee the education system that our children are subjected to.
This level of neglect of the circuit offices and the working conditions of employees shows a total disregard for the employee’s wellness and dignity by the Department, “said DA’s Jacques Smalle.

Smalle said Education MEC Polly Boshielo must urgently address the matter. 

“If this is how the Department treats its own employees and fails to maintain an office, it speaks volumes of their nature and it is concerning that we have to entrust this Department with the wellbeing of our hundreds of thousands of learners and the school infrastructure in the province.”

Speaking on national radio Thobela FM, Limpopo Education spokesperson Tidimalo Chuene blamed the lack of water and electricity at the offices on the contractor who damaged electrical cables during excavation.

“We are currently engaging with the department of public works to remedy the issue of water and electricity. We also provided temporary toilets at the circuit offices.”
