Free State commences asbestos roof replacement project

# The Free State government has initiated a project to replace asbestos roofs with corrugated iron sheets in over 36-thousand houses across the province. The project has seen top officials including former Free State premier, Ace Magashule and 17 others implicated for alleged corruption for the irregular awarding of the 255-million-rand asbestos roof removal contract. Human Settlement MEC Ketso Makume says the three-billion-rand project aims to ensure proper roof installation to two-thousand structures annually.
