The Department of Labour’s inquiry into the collapse of the Grayston bridge structure is continuing in Pretoria.
Proceedings were postponed last year due to the unavailability of witnesses.
Two people were killed and 19 others were injured when the temporary pedestrian bridge came crashing down on the busy M1 highway in 2015.
Department of Labour Spokesperson Teboho Thejane says three witnesses have been interviewed since Monday.
We have managed to start with a new chairperson Mr Phumi Maphaha. Three witnesses have been interviewed.— Teboho Thejane, Department of Labour Spokesperson
It is quite laborious, because the presiding officer is posing hard questions in terms of who is responsible, who had what duties in relation to the structure.— Teboho Thejane, Department of Labour Spokesperson
Thejane says Murray & Roberts employee, Oliver Aadnesgaard and his supervisor testified on Wednesday but refused to answer questions.
Mr Pristorius who is a supervisor to Aadnesgaard was also interviewed today. Most of the questions that were asked were not answered in fear of incriminating themselves.— Teboho Thejane, Department of Labour Spokesperson
