Government wages war on housing shortages

The government is no longer going to provide free housing in a wholesale manner. This is the message from national Housing Minister Lindiwe Sisulu to delegates attending a conference of Slum Dwellers International taking place at the Cape Town International Convention this weekend.

On the first day of the conference, Sisulu yesterday said the government was committed to the creation of "a culture of doing away with the culture of entitlement."

A unique challenge was to "prick the consciences" of the rich to show that they could be of assistance in fighting the housing shortage, Sisulu said Build your own home SatStar.

I wonder when Lindiwe Sisulu will do away with her culture of entitlement to just sit around on her fat ass.
