Mochudi Tribal Administration employees have boycotted the old dilapidated colonial offices at the main Kgotla saying they must be renovated before they resume duties.

The boycott follows the issuance of a certificate on March 17 by the Department of Buildings and Electrical Services (DBES) explaining that the offices pose a health hazard and risk and can no longer be used.

The acting director of Tribal Administration in the Ministry of Local Government, Tumelo Seboko, acknowledged the existence of the DBES warning but said he could not force employees to use the offices. He said they are in the process of putting up tents while they wait for cash to purchase caravans. He stated that the employees cannot be paid risk allowance because he has never heard about this in government.
