CAPE TOWN - Western Cape Human Settlements MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela admitted they would never have enough money to meet all the housing demands.

Madikizela was speaking at the Govan Mbeki Human Settlements Awards in Cape Town on Monday night.

The ceremony honoured service providers who worked alongside government to create housing opportunities in the province.

Among the winners, the N2 Gateway Project walked away with the Best Priority Project award.

The MEC believed the awards were very important.

"Most of the time you hear negative stories about this department. So we have taken some time to honour those who have been working very well with us to ensure we deliver quality services."
