MEC Mashatile wastes R500 million instead of providing housing
12 June 2017
Gauteng Human Settlement MEC, Paul Mashatile, has revealed that it has cost his department R500 million in legal fees over the last 12 months to prevent the spread of new informal settlements as a result of increasing land invasions in Gauteng.
Despite MEC Mashatile’s pleas with Gauteng residents to stop land invasions this trend is likely to continue as, his department has not done enough to address the 600 000 housing backlog in the province.
Gauteng residents are tired and frustrated with the ANC government’s empty promises on delivering decent and adequate houses.
