Langa residents against moving out for renovations

The city is building 200 double-storey units to accommodate the hostel dwellers in Langa but residents of old Langa refused to move out for renovations.

This has cost the city more than R370 000 since June in payments to a building contracter.

Dan Plato head of the city housing portfolio told a daily news paper that this is a wasteful expenditure costing the city R70 000 a month.

According to an evection order the city obtained against the hostel dwellers last week, all hostel dwellers in Block C were to have been evicted.

The city has however provided Wendy houses for the residents.
