MEC Jacob Mamabolo launches housing completion work at Badirile, 8 Dec

Gauteng MEC for COGTA and Human Settlements Jacob Mamabolo will tomorrow launch the final work to complete houses in Badirile/Brandvlei in Randfontein. The MEC will be joined by Randfontein Executive Mayor Mzi Khumalo.

The project which was 292 houses faced numerous challenges that led to some of the houses not having basic services such as water, electricity and sanitation.

Other houses were further vandalised leaving them without windows and doors making it hard for residents to move in them.

Details of the launch:

Date: 8 December 2015

Time: 12h00

Venue: Badirile/Brandvlei show house – Randfontein, off the N14 highway.
