Thembelihle Social Housing project a new dawn for people`s housing

MF Nkadimeng

We welcome the recently launched R300 million Thembelihle Social Housing complex as a shining example of building integrated mixed housing projects in the inner city. We believe that this assist in undoing the legacy of the apartheid racialized spatial planning. This complex is situated in the Tshwane Central Business District, in Gauteng, and was launched on Tuesday, 17 April 2018. It has 733 mixed type units, which provide affordable rental accommodation to over 2 000 people. This affords a wonderful opportunity for beneficiaries who now get to stay close to areas of work helps reduce the often high transportation costs that come with being located along the periphery of our cities.

This project also seeks to addresses the challenges of the gap market of people who earn between R3 500 and R15 000. The ANC will always commit itself to its promise of building human settlements that are able to accommodate the poor and rich, living side by side, and believes that is the way to go in building future human settlements. The ANC calls for all provinces to implement more projects of this nature in the near future to revitalise the inner cities.

I thank you
