Mashabela, Ms N to ask the Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation
By what date does her department intend to complete the Reconstruction and Development Programme houses that were left incomplete in 2016 at Mahwelereng and Makhado in Limpopo?

The Limpopo Provincial Department of Co-operative Governance, Human Settlements & Traditional Affairs has appointed Contractors in 2019/2020 to complete 210 units. It is expected that the units will be completed by the end of October 2020. The Provincial Department will appoint Contractors during the 2021/22 financial year to complete the remaining 109 units. The anticipated completion date is 31 March 2022.
The total number of incomplete units in the Makhado Local Municipality is 87 spread over a total of 11 villages. The Limpopo Provincial Department of Co-operative Governance, Human Settlements & Traditional Affairs will appoint Contractors in the 2021/2022 financial year to complete the 87 units.
