The Human Settlements Ministry says it will need two weeks to try and address the housing concerns raised by Ennerdale and Eldorado Park residents.
Thami ka Plaatjie, an adviser to Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu, says he has been collecting information from the communities.
Plaatjie says he spent Monday in Eldorado Park and will spend today in Ennerdale to get a better grasp on the situation, reports EWN's Mia Lindeque.
