KWADUKUZA Mayor Ricardo Mthembu officiated at the start of the Etete Housing Project last Monday.

“We view this as a giant leap forward in the stream of human settlements for the advancement of the lives of our people. Holding true to our commitment, a month ago I met with the community of Etete and promised to deliver this project according to the determination of council.
“The 23rd of May shall remain an historic day, not only to us but for the beneficiaries, who are the people of this community. This determination is also part of our planning process aimed at ensuring that projects are delivered according to council wishes in the best interest of our people,”said Mthembu.

The project will be completed within two years. The community has welcomed the move and is looking forward to working with all the parties involved.
One thousand, four hundred and eight housing units, which will accommodate about 6000 people, will be built.
The contractor is already on site and the community was urged to exercise tolerance and restraint so that the project is a success.
