Disappointed Min delivery

Lindiwe Sisulu, the minister of housing, has promised drastic changes in the R3 billion housing N2 project near Cape Town, which planned to have 22 000 units built by next year.

To date, only 240 houses have been built.

The project which was hailed as one of the most innovative housing projects has run into serious difficulties, and shack dwellers at the Joe Slovo informal settlement say there has been no consultation from government about who will be housed there.

There has also been reports that construction is behind schedule and contractors have not been paid and scaling down to cut costs.
