Gauteng local government and housing MEC, Kgaugelo Lekgoro, has warned people to stop manipulating the housing process by taking illegal occupation of Reconstruction and Development Programme (RDP) homes.
In a press statement, the MEC says that, “Residents will never jump the housing queue process by embarking on acts of illegally occupying RDP houses in the province.”
“We cannot tolerate a situation where people just break the law with impunity,” warns Lekgoro.
Lekgoro was responding to threats that protesting residents in Thokoza in Ekurhuleni are planning to illegally occupy RDP houses in Eden Park.
