The Democratic Alliance has called for urgent action for the Limpopo Provincial government. 

This is after the government has failed to spend its allocated Human Settlements Development grant of R500 million for the 2013/2014 financial year. 

DA MP of Human Settlements Makashule Gana said if the budget was spent more than 9 000 homes could have been built. 

Gana said this money could have been spent on completing human settlements projects in Sekhukhune District Municipality and in the Lebogang Township.

Gana said according to our calculations, more than 9000 homes could have been built.

Gana said It is shocking that the department promised to build 12 500 houses by the end of the 2013/14 financial year and only managed to build 1500 houses of the set target.

Gana said at the same time it has handed a billion back to treasury in unspent money.

“It is high time that Minister Sisulu takes control and resolves this issue in the provincial department once and for all Gana added.
