Western Cape Minister of Human Settlements, Bonginkosi Madikizela and Stellenbosch Mayor Conrad Sidego , will on Tuesday 19 July 2016 conduct an official housing handover ceremony to the beneficiaries of The Watergang Phase 2 Housing Project in Khayamnandi, Stellenbosch.

With over 500 000 households in the Western Cape requiring housing assistance, and with a budget allocated from the National Human Settlements Department that can provide around 20 000 housing opportunities per year, it’s essential that the available housing opportunities are prioritized for the most vulnerable.
