People transport sheets of corrugated iron from Phomollong informal settlement to Nellmaphius.

Pretoria - More than 300 people were relocated from Phomolong informal settlement to Nellmapius in Mamelodi east on Thursday as part of the City of Tshwane project to formalise informal settlements.

Housing and Human Settlements MMC Mandla Nkomo said people were relocated because their former location was not fit for human habitation.

He said they had been staying there for more than 10 years.

Human settlement MMC Mandla Nkomo speaks about the relocation of people from Phomollong.

Nkomo said: "Originally they are from Marabastad. We are providing them with stands so that they can build houses for themselves. Those who qualify for RDP houses are going to get them while they are here."
