Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi says heads will roll but he was not aware of the large amounts spent on sanitising schools.

Gauteng MEC for Education Panyaza Lesufi says he is disappointed and disgusted that his department spent R431 million on sanitising schools.

Lesufi says he did not know the amount was that huge until a journalist from _Maverick Citizen _contacted him for a comment on the matter.

The report which Maverick Citizen quotes, states that the amount was spent between June and August 2020 to sanitise schools.

Speaking to Mandy Wiener, Lesufi says heads will roll.

I have taken the decision that I need to get law-enforcement agencies to dig deep and investigate this matter. I am disgusted and taken aback as well. Whoever that was responsible they must know we will take appropriate action.

Panyaza Lesufi, Education MEC - Gauteng

I was not aware, I only became aware when the journalist requested the information and when I went through the report I was completely taken aback.
