MABALSTAD - More than 1,000 low cost houses have been earmarked for villages in the Moses Kotane municipality, North West local government MEC Gordon Kegakilwe said on Monday.
"In this financial year I have decided that 1,855 houses will be allocated for Moses Kotane [municiplaity]. These houses will be build in rural villages. This will create short term employment for residents," he said.
Kegakilwe was speaking in Mabalstad outside Rustenburg, at the handing over of three houses built by Magalies Water as part of its corporate social investment programme.
"We are going to try by all means that in these projects, women, disabled people, youth and our military veterans, who are in the building sector benefit so that we can develop them."
Magalies Water built a three-bedroom house for Dimakatso Digatsu, 86, in Mabalstad. Two other house were build in Motlhabe for the late Andries Ngolosa, 84, and at Seshibitswe for Johannes Mokgongwe, 83, respectively.
