Beating poverty and homelessness

It is the intention of the province to change human settlement patterns over the next five years in order to stimulate the economy and make employment more accessible.

In the central corridor, 140 000 housing units will be built in Lion Park, Diepsloot East, Fleurhof, Cosmo City, Malibongwe Ridge and Goud Rand.

A further 100 000 housing units will be delivered over the next five years in such areas as Chief Albert Luthuli, John Dube Extension 2, Tsakane Extension 22, Germiston South, Leeuwpoort, Rietfontein and Clayville Extension 45.

More than 160 000 housing units will be built in Syferfontein, Chief Mogale, Kagiso Extension 13, Leratong, Westonaria Borwa, Thusang, Waagterskop, Kokosi Extension 6 and 7, Droogeheuwel, Mohlakeng Extension 11, Khutsong South Extension 1, 2 and 3 and Vaarkenslaagte.

Covering the southern corridor, more than 120 000 houses in Sedibeng are to be built in Boiketlong, Golden Highway, Evaton, Vereeniging, Savanah City, Ratanda and on the R59 corridor.

These are unprecedented times, and the role of media to tell and record the story of South Africa as it develops is more important than ever. But it comes at a cost. Advertisers are cancelling campaigns, and our live events have come to an abrupt halt. Our income has been slashed.
