The Economic Freedom Figthers (EFF) in the Free State has called on the department of Human Settlements to formalise all the informal settlements in Mangaung.

The party is marching to the department’s offices to hand over a memorandum of demands.

EFF is accusing the department for returning money back to National Treasury, after failing to use money allocated to building houses.

It says this is happening while many people still live on under developed land without proper services.

EFF Mangaung secretary, Mpho Ramatlama explains. “All informal settlements to be formalised and the third reason we are marching to this departments, to the department of human settlements to demand that they start to build houses for our people. Because you would recall that not so long about 600 million was returned back to the treasury because the department not spending money that was meant for the services of the people of the Free State.”
