EXCITEMENT filled the streets of Diamond Park in Greenpoint yesterday as 10 new homeowners prepare to move into their newly built RDP houses today.

The Minister of Human Settlements, Nomaindia Mfeketo, will hand over the houses today as part of government’s Imbizo Focus Week. Construction workers were yesterday hard at work putting the finishing touches to the houses.

One of the recipients, Alfred Le Roux, who has lived in a shanty measuring two square metres for the past 15 years, said he was elated that he would now be the owner of a brick house.

“Everyone in this area is happy about the handover of the houses. We realise that this is not just a breakthrough for us who are recipients of the houses, but for the entire community as it has given the people hope. We can see that strides have been made by government after many years of people having to suffer. We are now reaping the fruit of our patience,” said Le Roux.

Volgens Danie Jacobsz, projekbestuurder van Barzani Development wat die konstruksie van die huise sal behartig, behoort die projek teen Desember volgende jaar voltooi te wees.

Al die huise sal van toilette voorsien wees en dus sal buite-toilette nie meer nodig wees nie.

Met Noordkaap se besoek aan Diamond Park op Vrydag (22/09) was werkers besig om ’n kantoorgebou, wat vir die duur van die projek as Barzani Development se kantoorgebou sal dien, te bou.

Jacobsz meen dat die gebou met die voltooiing van die projek aan die gemeenskap geskenk sal word. Fourie sê voorstelle kan aan die Sol Plaatje-munisipaliteit gemaak word sodat die gebou moontlik dan vir ’n kliniek of gemeenskapsentrum gebruik kan word.
