Meanwhile, earlier this month the investigation surrounding the 2018 explosion got underway at the Community House in Salt River on Tuesday, October 19.
According to a statement by the Department of Employment and Labour, this is the second sitting since the fatal incident after the first sitting took place in May 2021 where 13 witnesses were cross-examined before the commission.
“The department then ordered the establishment of a section 32 inquiry to investigate violations of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) thus appointing Mphumzi Dyulete as the Presiding Inspector but the inquiry could not continue in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions,” the statement said.
