Mohlala, Ms MR to ask the Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation

Given that the community of Motala Farm in Ward 15 in the Ethekwini region has been without houses and proper sanitation since the dawn of democracy and that even though land was identified on which to build them houses, nothing has been done, by what date does she envisage will her department build proper houses and provide sanitation to the specified community?


Based on the information provided by the Kwa-Zulu Natal Provincial Department of Human Settlements, the project is at a pre-feasibility stage. An application was received by the Provincial Department of Human Settlements from eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality, which was duly processed and feedback was accordingly provided to the Metropolitan Municipality. The eThekwini Metro is currently incorporating all the comments received from the Provincial Department of Human Settlements, to ensure that the project meets the funding criteria for the Human Settlement Development Grant (HSDG).
