Johannesburg - Leaking walls, sagging ceilings and sewage flowing outside their doors. These are the conditions residents of a block of city-owned flats in Vredepark, Randburg, have to contend with.
The residents said the latest leaks have been affecting them for the past two weeks and were just part of an array of problems with the building.
The hazardous conditions have persisted despite DA ward 58 councillor Nazley Sharif highlighting them in a complaint she has filed with the City of Johannesburg’s housing department.
“If they pay rent, they deserve to get their flats maintained,” Sharif said. “Nobody deserves to live like this.”
