Tenderpreneurship key to Limpopo collapse – Motsoaledi

2012-11-26 17:12

Tenderpreneurship played a pivotal role in the collapse of the Limpopo health department, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has said.

Officials from his department found that about 38 boilers in 19 hospitals had completely collapsed because of the lack of maintenance. Contracts to maintain the boilers were outsourced to people who didn’t know anything about boilers. “You can’t take you Mercedes-Benz and give it to some guy in the rural areas and ask him to maintain it for you. Can you? No, you have to take it to Mercedes-Benz and it has quite a complicated electronic system.”
