Johannesburg – The Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) has appointed an independent law firm to investigate the death of three-year-old Kganya Mokhele, a month after his death.
The department told IOL that the investigation started on May 10.
“Accordingly, the department had to comply with procurement regulations, hence the delay in the appointment of a law firm,” it stated.
Mokhele died at Little Ashford Preschool in Bedfordview, Ekurhuleni, on March 7. A bookshelf allegedly fell on him in one of the classrooms during snack time when he reached for a toy on the top shelf.
