The DA says provinces and municipalities will have to carry South Africa’s housing burden after the Department of Human Settlements instructed provincial departments to put measures in place to immediately downscale the delivery of government houses. News24 reports that in a letter the Department said that planned projects for next year will only be supported if they are to benefit the elderly, military veterans, people with disabilities, and child-headed households, something the DA’s Emma Louise Powell said had been brought on by ANC corruption and government’s continued bailing out of bankrupt state-owned entities. “While the government no longer has money to provide shelter for poor and destitute South Africans, just this month it has prioritised funding for another R10.5-billion bailout to the defunct South African Airways,” Powell complained.
