500 000 Need RDP Houses

More than 500 000 people registered for housing in Gauteng are still waiting for their homes to be built

Gauteng MEC for Local Government and Housing, Kgaogelo Lekgoro, says more than 500 000 people registered for housing in Gauteng are still waiting for their homes to be built.

"Having delivered 650 000 housing opportunities in the last 15 years which gave shelter to an estimated 1.5 million people, we are still faced with more than 500 000 people registered as waiting for houses on our demand database," says Lekgoro.

Lekgoro, who was reporting back on his first 100 days in office, said housing shortages continued because people tended to migrate to Gauteng from South Africa and the rest of Africa.
