Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale has announced that ANC stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela will lead a government task team to advise on the eradication of informal settlements.
Sexwale will announce the team that will help her next week. Madikizela-Mandela and Sexwale visited a women’s building project in Brandfort in the Free State as part of Women’s Month.
It is expected that the team will look at all aspects of housing development, including sanitation.
The project was an annual initiative to commemorate the 1956 women's march to the Union Buildings against apartheid pass laws.
