Call to Stop Increasing Informal Settlements

MEC urges municipalities to create by-laws that prevent ‘mushrooming’ of informal settlements

North West Human Settlements MEC, Desbo Mohono, has urged the province’s municipalities to create stringent by-laws to prevent the ‘mushrooming’ of informal settlements.

Mohono, points out that, “We cannot win this battle if we continue to be held to ransom by our people, who continue to occupy land illegally and continue to add numbers to the ever emerging informal settlements.”

She made the appeal during the handing over of the informal settlements improvement plan report on Friday in Rustenburg, following a five year investigation.
