The department for Local Government and Housing committed itself to intensify the rectification of the poorly built houses.

"The rectification of houses is a national housing programme that seeks to rectify defects in respect of municipal services and top structural defects," says spokesperson for Local Government and Housing, Vusi Tshose.

Houses that were delivered before March 15, 1994, are excluded. The programme is aimed at houses that were delivered from March 15, 1994 to March 31 2002. Also the houses that were built by the Cape Town Community Housing Company in 2000 in nine different villages. Namely in Heideveld, Pylon, Railway, Newfields, Luyoloville, Philippi, Woodrigde, Mannenberg, and Town Centre.

"In some of the areas, communities and stakeholders have already started engagements," says Tshose.

The MEC of Local Government and Housing, Qubudile Richard Dyantyi, also wants the chapter on all unresolved housing related matters like the blocked projects, half built houses and those projects effected by corruption elements in the PHP arena.
