Daggakraal soek huise

More than 150 families at Daggakraal in Mpumalanga who lost their houses during the heavy rains earlier this year, still have to wait longer to get proper houses. [Perhaps they should build their own dagga home.]

Instead of taking time off to attend Easter weekend church services, these families are repairing their damaged houses. They claim that not enough material has been supplied by government as promised. The department of local government and housing made a promise to continue assisting them after assessing the damage.

The community of Daggakraal was amongst other areas in the province hardest hit by the heavy rains. Most damage affected mud houses. The local authorities say it is now the responsibility of the local government and housing department to provide adequate housing for the people. SABC
