Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu is set to present a proposed long-term housing solution for Masiphumelele residents. This, after a massive fire, destroyed more than 1000 structures leaving more than 6000 people homeless.
On Monday, Sisulu visited the area and encouraged residents to play their part while the government works on a plan. Sisulu says she would like the Masiphumelele community to commit to not building shacks in the back of their houses. Residents remain hopeful that their long-time housing needs would finally be addressed.
