Gauteng provincial government's decision to sell properties it owns comes after an audit was conducted last year to find other means to generate income.
An announcement was made on Tuesday when Premier David Makhura decided to put the properties up for sale - after an audit by the Department of Infrastructure Development - as this made more financial sense.
702's John Robbie chatted with his spokesperson, Phumla Sekhonyane, on the details of the the property sale.
There's money that we're spending on maintaining some of these properties that are not giving us value for money.— Phumla Sekhonyane, Premier David Makhura's spokesperson
She said Makhura requested an audit of core and non-core assets last year in response to properties that weren't generating income for the province.
The premier's official residence is on the list of 31 residential properties to be auctioned by the end of December.
The view was that this is not value for money here and we must put the properties on the market to generate more revenue for other priorities.— Phumla Sekhonyane, Premier David Makhura's spokesperson
