Corrupt housing officials to be dealt with

The City of Cape Town says they are aware of corrupt officials in the housing allocation system, an investigation will be launched and guilty parties will be dealt with accordingly.

This is after a group of residents from Imizamo Yethu complained that they were still homeless despite holding relevant papers for houses allocated to them.

It is alleged that those with money to bribe the officials were able to jump the queues and are now occupying the houses.

According to EWN reporter, Natalie Malgas, the City advised families without houses to de-register and be prioritised for next years' housing projects.

The City also said it was not aware of the corruption going on in its housing system.

Listen below to hear how the city is handling the Imizamo Yethu housing problems:
