Protector: Some RDP houses don't exist

2012-08-02 20:37

Klerksdorp - RDP houses listed as having been completed sometimes do not exist, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela said on Thursday.

"People received letters that their houses have been completed and [are] ready, only to find that no such a house existed, or that it was given to someone else," she said at a meeting with residents in Klerksdorp.

Madonsela was in the North West on Thursday as part of a systematic investigation into complaints about RDP houses and minibus taxis across the country.

She has already been to KwaZulu-Natal, the Eastern Cape and the Free State, and would visit Limpopo next week.

Madonsela said Klerksdorp residents had made serious allegations against officials responsible for housing. A mayoral committee member was allegedly involved in the illegal sale of houses.

"The emerging factor here is what should be the role of councillors in the procurement and provision of houses... whether they should be involved directly or be mediators?"

Madonsela would hold a meeting in Mahikeng on Friday.

      Yes Vince you are so correct - very subtle - for the edification of the trite minded: "an expression of helplessness and despair at the current state of the world - in this case the ANC's South Africa"

    the very same people that were screwed over this time will vote for the ANC again next election.

      tw2066 - 2012-08-03 05:45

      Sedeshan 100%. The ANC are doing more to screw Africans over than any race or country ever could, but seemingly the population enjoy this?

  • Bless Boswell - 2012-08-02 21:24

    What if: the ANC throws in the towel if they stuff it up just 1 more time?

  • hendrikvs - 2012-08-02 21:25

    No surprise! Normal ANC procedure to kick the people in the ass that voted for them!

  • kevin.pitzer - 2012-08-02 21:35

    Please check if the people who released this info still exist!

  • KCorsar - 2012-08-02 21:39

    Does that surprise me - NO NEVER!! but an invoice does and a cheque paying the thieving bastards. It time to reopen Robben Island as a hard labour camp for imbezzlers again and still allow tourists to watch the d&%*f*^kers chop rocks for a life. Makes them really feel what some went through to bring democracy to SA, not a gravy train!!

  • ramonamichil.chegwidden - 2012-08-02 21:49

    How can the rich uneducated criminals steal from the poor especially if they were chosen by the ANC and the people, is this just greed or what shall we call this.
