POLOKWANE-The Democratic Alliance in Limpopo has raised concerns over the alleged appalling conditions of the ablution facilities at Rivubye High School at Valdezia outside Louis Trichardt.

DA spokesperson on Education Katlego Phala says they conducted an oversight visit to the school and discovered that the toilets are dilapidated, filthy and unsafe while some have no doors, and the floors are constantly waterlogged with dirty water.

Phala says the school has 809 enrolled learners with only 4 dilapidated toilet blocks, learners have to shield each other when they use the toilets, and the school is still heavily dependent on pit toilets.

She says the school has not received any real assistance from the education department while they are being told every year to use their norms and standards funds that are not adequate for improving sanitation facilities at the school.

Limpopo education spokesperson Mike Maringa speaking to Capricorn FM News said they will inquire with their infrastructure department and respond at a later stage.
