Housing delivery HSRC report

Pretoria - Unemployment-induced poverty was causing many government housing beneficiaries to move back into shacks, a Human Sciences Research Council report revealed on Tuesday
"Unemployment is undermining South Africa's housing delivery strategy," researcher Catherine Cross said in Pretoria.

"Serviced housing alone is not going to be enough to overcome poverty," she said. "There will have to be jobs. It is becoming more and more difficult for people to stay in the houses they've got." News24
