Cape Town - Government has for the first time since 1994 passed the 3-million mark in providing houses and housing opportunities in South Africa.
The majority of these beneficiaries were from the poorest parts of society, said Minister of Human Settlements Tokyo Sexwale in Parliament on Wednesday.
"The main focus of our housing delivery remains the poorest of the poor, many of whom are in and around informal settlements. At this stage the following message must be clear: our government does not build slums, imikhukhu, amatyotyombe!" he said during his Budget Vote.
