Mining hostels to be demolished

13 February 2015

North West Department of Local Government and Human Settlements plans to demolish mining hostels in Khuma township beginning this April, to pave way for family units with proper sanitation and infrastructure.

During demolition, people who use the hostels will be given temporary accommodation nearby. Relocation is expected to be complete by end of March.

Once the new family units is complete, hostel occupants will be allocated houses. The temporary structures will then be demolished.

The construction plans are in follow up to last March’s visit by Deputy President Ramaphosa who committed to monitor the progress of demolition of the hostels and construction of houses.
