The Deputy Minister of Human Settlements, Zou Kota-Fredericks, MP, handed over two houses to beneficiaries, a child headed household and elderly woman.
This handover formed part of the morning household visit on the day of the Presidential Siyahlola Monitoring Programme which took place in Thulamahashe, Mpumalanga. The Deputy Minister’s handover came a day after Mpumalanga MEC of Human Settlements, Ms Violet Siwela, MPL, handed over two houses at MP Stream Village in Thulamahashe as part of the activities leading up to the Presidential event which brought the total number of houses handed over to beneficiaries during the Presidential Siyahlola to four.
One of the beneficiaries was Nomsa Ndlovu, an unemployed mother of nine and two grandchildren. She has been living in a small cracked mud house for years.
“We remain committed to providing shelter to deserving members of our society. President Zuma and some of his Cabinet Ministers have come to Bushbuckridge in order to engage with you on what this government plans and is already improving the lives of ordinary people in this area. This is your chance to engage your government”, said DM Kota-Fredericks.
Deputy Minister Kota-Fredericks was joined by State Security Minister, Mr David Mahlobo, MEC of Human Settlements, Ms Violet Siwela and MEC of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Ms RM Mtshweni.
