Protector told of KZN housing woes
Public Protector Thuli Madonsela heard many RDP housing concerns on her KwaZulu-Natal visit yesterday.
Her spokeswoman Kgalalelo Masibi said grievances included an allegation that someone was given a toilet fitted with a geyser to live in, instead of a house. "There were serious concerns regarding the role of councillors, including who qualifies and (who) gets a house.
"Locals also raised concerns about sites allocated to people without subsidies to build houses, and waiting lists that disappeared."
Residents also raised concerns about incomplete houses, people jumping housing queues, and houses sold to foreigners.
