Writer: Raphael da Silva


At a meeting yesterday at the Zwelihle Sports Stadium in Hermanus, the Western Cape Minister of Human Settlements, Tertius Simmers, announced that the provincial government will be acquiring the Schulphoek land in order to create 7,500 housing opportunities.

“We are nearly in the final process with the owners of that land to actually acquire the land so we, as the province, can start building the project,” said Minister Simmers.

The Minister also announced that he has requested a complete review of all the housing waiting lists in the province in order to ensure that corrupt practices are not influencing which beneficiaries are being chosen.
