Homu sports complex resembles an abandoned kraal

by Solly Malatsi MP – DA Political Head for Mopani Constituency

The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Mopani today conducted an oversight visit at the Homu Sports Complex in the Giyani Local Municipality.

The facility now resembles an abandoned kraal. It is yet another example of the Giyani Municipality’s consistent neglect of public amenities in the area.

The sports complex was first built in August 2014 with the promise of a soccer field with a grandstand, a basketball and a tennis court.

It has three dressing rooms with sanitation services and two floodlights.

The initial cost of the project was R6.5 million. It was due to be completed in February 2015.

The facility is in a current state of disrepair. The dressing rooms are dilapidated, the grandstand is falling apart while the basketball and tennis courts need to be completely rebuilt if they are ever to be used again.

The only activity that is taking place at the facility is the livestock that has taken over for permanent grazing land and a home.

We will be engaging with our colleagues in the Limpopo Provincial Legislature for the intervention of the MEC of Sports, Arts and Culture, Thandi Moraka.

It is completely unacceptable that a facility, that should be of great use to sport loving youngsters in the area, has become a white elephant as a result of the ANC incompetence in the Giyani Local Municipality.

Where we govern, the DA is committed to investing in public amenities, especially in maintaining existing infrastructure, including sports and recreation amenities to ensure that residents can congregate safely and enjoy themselves.
