Western Cape Human Settlements Minister
Bonginkosi Madikizela will today address the community of the boy’s town
housing project in Nyanga, in a public meeting in response to allegations of
corruption at the project and attempts by the community to forcibly stop
construction, of phase 2 of the housing project.
Spokesperson Bruce Oom explains that some community
members have been forcibly trying to stop construction at the site and they are
concerned that housing opportunities are not being fairly allocated.
Oom said there is conflict as there is a
much greater demand for housing opportunities than there are opportunities
themselves and this leads to quite a bit of conflict on the ground in the
Oom said Minister Madikizela will be
addressing these concerns as well as detailing a way forward with the project.
However Minister Madikizela is expected to
say that construction will continue, because many people are waiting for their
houses and they need to get into them as soon as possible, Oom added.
