ANC denies residents access to housing sites since 2016

The housing backlog in the Free State is the worst in the country. As reported by the National Department of Human Settlements, there are 11,000 incomplete houses, similar to the project in Platberg. 220 housing projects have been terminated. The department in the province is bankrupt. According to the Zondo Commission, this was the result of corruption, mismanagement and looting.
