Johannesburg - Newly appointed Minister for Human Settlements Lindiwe Sisulu has promised to fast-track the delivery of “decent” houses as she takes up her new role.

She said the provision of housing was not only about chasing numbers.

It was about ensuring that all houses built by government were of high quality that afforded beneficiaries decent accommodation.

“Our primary task is to ensure that we provide decent housing and create an environment whereby the private sector will invest in low-income housing projects... ,” she said in a statement on Wednesday.

It will be Sisulu's second stint in charge of the ministry. She headed the portfolio in 2004.

Sisulu said her office would play a critical role in implementing and delivering on the promises made by the African National Congress of improving people's living conditions.

“The president has made it clear to all of us that the next five years are about fast-tracked service delivery, and I am happy that I have been given this task of leading such a critical service delivery department,” she said.
