Sexwale: Provinces under-delivering

Oct 29 2012 18:35
Johannesburg - Provincial housing departments under-spending their budgets are at risk of losing funding if they do not improve, Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale warned on Monday.

"As in the past, we shall not hesitate to apply intervention measures by taking funds from under-performing provinces and transferring them to those that are doing well, for the sake of delivery to our people," Sexwale said in a statement.

He recently convened a meeting of human settlement MECs and issued his warning. The MECs agreed to implement recovery plans, to be approved by the minister, that would spend the unused funds, intended for housing and settlement improvements.
