MEC warns RDP fraudsters

THE Gauteng human settlements department will use the full force of the law to prosecute anyone involved in corruption.

THE Gauteng human settlements department will use the full force of the law to prosecute anyone involved in corruption.

This was human settlements MEC Kgaogelo Lekgoro's response to Sowetan's exposé yesterday about alleged conman Bafana Ntuli, who sold RDP houses for R6000 a unit.

"As the department charged with delivering houses to our people, we are always concerned when people driven by greed take advantage of those in need," Lekgoro said.

"We have systems that will not allow anyone to fraudulently offer a house to a non-beneficiary. The house in the Sowetan story belongs to an identified beneficiary and is still undergoing construction. No one other than the legal beneficiary will occupy it."
