Ward councillor Aimee Kuhl says she has still received no communication from Saps and public works on whether plans to rebuild the Muizenberg police station at R100 million will go ahead.
Earlier this month the Cape Argus reported that the National Public Works Department had approved the budget amid concerns from councillors, as well as civil group Social Justice Coalition (SJC) who opposed the decision.
In a change of tune at the weekend, Police Minister Bongani Mkongi told the Cape Argus that the money will instead be spent on a new police station for Makhaza, in Khayelitsha. It has emerged however that the department of Public Works is unaware of this request.
The project has apparently been put on hold.
Pippa Hudson spoke to Kuhl to get some clarity on the matter.
No public participation took place on this so it all came as a massive surprise.— Aimee Kuhl, Councillor - Ward 64
There is so much conflicting information.— Aimee Kuhl, Councillor - Ward 64
I will be the first one when June comes around to poke again and see if we have any confirmation of where this money is going to be spent.— Aimee Kuhl, Councillor - Ward 64
