Promote housing over land allocation Maele


Lands and Housing minister Prince Maele says there is a need to promote affordable housing over land allocation. Speaking during the Housing Pitso on Monday, Maele said emphasis in policy should be on housing rather than land allocation because there was shortage of the latter.

He said most of the available land needed to be serviced before it was allocated, a move that involves high costs.

“I don’t mind too much when you don’t have a piece of land but you have somewhere to sleep,” he told delegates. “We should put emphasis on housing than land allocation, taking into consideration the availability of land, and when we are talking land, we mean serviced land.”
