The Western Cape Government Minister for Human Settlements, along with several Western Cape municipal mayors, will be meeting some of the recent beneficiaries of the department's Social Housing programme as part of a briefing tour to showcase the programme. Included in the beneficiaries will be some senior citizens and some families.

Thereafter, the tour, which will also include Human Settlements Mayco members and other high ranking offcials, will travel to the Steenberg, Bothasig and Drommedaris projects to get a first-hand view of Social Housing service delivery and to interact with beneficiaries.

Journalists wishing to have a more in-depth understanding of the department's strategic approach regarding Social Housing, along with an informed grasp of the realities, challenges and successes of delivery, as well as having access to political principals and  interviews with Social Housing beneficiaries, are invited.

Journalists are invited to travel along in the supplied bus.
