Smelling an RDP rat

Your front page story, Looters hit Mdantsane RDP homes (DD, January 26) refers:

Thank you for this investigative report Mamela Gowa.  As the DA we believe that as soon as a house has been built, the rightful beneficiary should immediately take occupation to mitigate theft and vandalism.

I will be writing to the ANC MEC for Human Settlements, Helen Sauls-August, demanding answers as to what caused the delay in occupation and if a criminal case has been registered at the SAPS for investigation.

I want to know why lists for beneficiaries of housing subsidies are not open and transparent for all of us to see publicly.
