Government envisages that the construction of a Community Residents Unit (CRU) in Sasolburg will go a long way in addressing the problem of overcrowded flats in Zamdela, says the mayor of Metsimaholo Local Municipality, Brutus Mahlaku. Mahlaku said some residents will be allocated stands while others will wait for government to build them RDP houses.
“It is not everyone who will lay their hands on this form of lodging, given the high demand. However, we do promise that people who want stands will get them after all due processes. The CRU project will be a welcome relief as you might be aware that it is not too far from the new municipal building,” said Mahlaku.
He said the project will be spearheaded by the provincial government and will benefit people who do not qualify for RDP houses and stands.
“These flats will be for people who do not qualify for RDPs and stands. Stands will be allocated at Boschhoek to those who want them. We are aware that many people want to live in their own houses,” said Mahlaku.
