Johannesburg -

The commission of inquiry set up to investigate the collapse of the Tongaat Mall, in which two people died, will resume on Wednesday.

“With the commission's evidence work gathering momentum, the spotlight in the upcoming session will fall on the further cross-examination of witnesses and experts,” KwaZulu-Natal labour department spokesman Nhlanhla Khumalo said in a statement.

“This will include workers who were below the slab during the collapse... eThekwini municipal representatives, engineers and the contractor/client.”

Two people were killed and 29 injured when a section of the mall, which was under construction, collapsed in November last year.

The department's occupational health and safety manager, Phumudzo Maphaha, was appointed to preside over the commission investigating events leading to the collapse of the mall.

The commission is expected to prepare a report of its findings and formulate recommendations to be presented to the labour minister and National Prosecuting Authority for consideration. - Sapa
