urgently investigate the alleged running of businesses by ANC
cadres at Tshwane Hostels in Gauteng.
IFP Spokesperson on Human Settlements, Mr
Petros Sithole,MP, said "Our local leaders have confirmed that
in Sausiville hostel ANC cadres are running a motor-vehicle car
panel-beating business and are residing in rooms allocated for
the poor and indigent. ANC aligned professional teachers and the
children of former ANC councillors are also residents.
Furthermore, bribes are being paid for the supply of free
electricity to some of the rooms. It is reported that Block, I,
J and K are receiving free electricity."
"Besides the Sausiville hostel, we are also
extremely concerned about the Mamelodi Hostel where people were
moved out of the hostel as construction work was about to
commence but up and until now nothing has happened,"
The IFP calls on the Office of the Public
Protector, the MEC for Human Settlements in Gauteng and the
Mayor of Tshwane to urgently conduct investigations into this
