Gauteng MEC Paul Mashatile updates on Reiger Park, housing developments

Issues of housing have been escalated by recent protests in areas like Reiger Park.

Last week, residents barricaded several roads leading in and out of the area, saying foreign nationals were being allocated RDP houses while locals are still living in shacks.

Gauteng Human Settlements MEC, Paul Mashatile shares some of the plans currently on track to address issues of housing across the province.

The department has done a lot of planning in terms of the new approach of implementing major human settlement projects, the weakness course was that we were slow on the implementation side… We have since resolved that and most of our plans are now on track

Paul Mashatile, Gauteng Human Settlements MEC

With Reiger Park specifically I think its more suspicion than anything else.

Speaking on the progress of the Alexandra Renewal Project, Mashatile says several developments are ready for implementation, which will resolve issues of congestion in the area.

We are realizing that you can’t develop Alex unless you acquire additional land around Alex

Paul Mashatile, Gauteng Human Settlements MEC

There are a number of major projects coming, one of them is ‘Alex Development’ which will take place around Malboro, all those pieces of land around Malboro toward the Jukskei River and so on
