MS AM SIWISA to ask the Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure
Since the beginning of the sixth Parliament, what total number of buildings has his department released for the sole purpose of establishing temporary shelters for fire victims who are often hit by shack fires which leave families destitute in the Western Cape

As the provision of temporary shelters to fire victims’ resorts under Disaster Management, a function of the Local Municipalities, the Department has not received any requests nor provided any temporary shelters to fire victims.
