Tongaat Mall Collapse Timeline : Findings Expected in July 2015
The Tongaat Mall Collapse commission of inquiry has concluded its hearings and is expected to produce a report of the findings by the end of May 2015.
The report will then be presented to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). The DPP is expected to take a month or more to establish who, if anyone, should be prosecuted for the building accident which caused two deaths and twenty nine injuries.
The commission heard expert evidence to the fact that the structure was illegaly constructed without the necessary approvals, that particular sections of the structure were not built to engineer's specification and that the contractor had not submitted concrete test cubes when requested by the engineer.
