The Tongaat shopping centre that collapsed yesterday – trapping some 50 workers in a major tragedy – is linked to a high-flying and controversial family already under fire in an official report for their companies’ “shoddy” building standards.

Last week, The Witness revealed that two of Singh’s housing developments – Burbreeze and Hammonds Farm – were slated in a recent city investigation, the Manase Report, for “shoddy” building standards and how the family had scored more than R500 million in city contracts. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
