RDP houses 'not fit' for Lenasia
Julius Malema has questioned the intentions of government to build low cost houses in Lenasia.
JOHANNESBURG - Julius Malema has questioned the Gauteng Local Government and housing department’s plans to build low cost houses on illegally sold land in Lenasia.
More than 80 structures have been demolished to clear the land for the project.
Malema inspected the area on Friday and said there is no way that the disputed land was earmarked for low cost housing.
“Next to this land are big houses. If this land is illegally occupied, it goes together as it is one piece of land. They are targeting those who don’t have money.”
Cosatu's Dumisani Dakile raised the same point when a delegation from the trade union federation inspected the area on Thursday.
“This is not a place where you can build RDP houses this is just a fallacy which is meant to buy public sympathy by government.
