Residents protest long housing waiting list

Residents protest long housing waiting list

ANNA Lekale has been waiting for a house for the past 10 years. But instead of the promised RDP house from the government, she, like thousands of other Kliptown residents, got pit toilets.
Residents of the settlement took to the streets in protest against lack of service delivery in their area this week. Police fired rubber bullets ­into the crowd of protesters and scores were arrested.
Not far from Lekale’s crumbling shack is the Walter Sisulu Square, previously known as Freedom Square. The square was built at a cost of about R160 million, yet people in the area still live in squalid conditions.
