Physically Disabled Will Be In The Spotlight In The Oudtshoorn Housing Handover

14 November 2016

Tomorrow 15 November 2016 the Western Cape Minister of Human Settlements, Mr Bonginkosi Madikizela will handover more than fifty houses in Bongolethu, in Oudtshoorn.

These houses are part of a bigger project that will yield about 150 Breaking New Ground (BNG) houses in different areas of Oudtshoorn but tomorrow Minister Madikizela will focus on Bongolethu.

BNG houses are those that were formerly referred to as RDP houses.

In line with the Department’s policy of prioritizing the elderly beneficiaries and those who have special circumstances, Minister Madikizela will be handing keys to physically disabled beneficiaries who include Mr David Jansen and Ms Gladys Banjatwa who are 55 and 53 years old respectively.

Mr Jansen walks with the help of a walking aid while Ms Banjatwa is hearing impaired. Upon completion, the project will benefit almost ten people with disabilities.
