North West residents appealed to Public Protector Thuli Madonsela on Thursday to help resolve problems with RDP houses in Klerksdorp. Her office had received at least 2 305 complaints. WATCH

Johannesburg - New guidelines aimed at improving the quality of reconstruction and development programme (RDP) houses in the Eastern Cape have been approved, the province's human settlements department said on Monday.

Spokesperson Lwandile Sicwetsha said the new guidelines provided for the plastering of internal and external walls, running water inside the house, an inside bathroom as well as a solar geyser.

"The normal houses don't have these provisions," said Sicwetsha in a statement.

The province was aiming to build 1 000 houses by the end of the year.
