Six months on, collapsed RDP house not yet fixed
A 28-YEAR-OLD man is furious that after nearly six months his late grandmother's collapsed RDP house has still not been fixed.
Frank Mogane said this was despite him having reported the problem to the Mpumalanga department of human settlements.
Mogane's grand-mother, Austin Mogane, died before the house collapsed.
Mogane said the house at Moremela village collapsed in March and he reported this immediately.
"I was not at home when it collapsed but I reported it immediately and I was told officials would come to inspect the house but no one has come.
"I am forced to stay in my uncle's house in Kanana section ," Mogane said.
He said he was unemployed and could not fix the house himself.
The department's Freddy Ngobe said the damaged house had not been reported to the department.
But Ngobe added: "Reported cases are dealt with by forcing the contractors to repair the houses that were not built according to plan.
"If they refuse to do so the cases are referred to the special investigations unit to recover repair costs incurred by the department."
