Time to accept that the Reconstruction and Development Programme (RDP) has failed

June 9, 2014

These evictions and housing strikes nationally should be a sign to all political parties in South Africa that “free” RDP/state housing has failed!

Any policy that promises free housing is a total lie, the time has come to start

(1) teaching people to build their own housing

(2) issue township dwellers with their title deeds

(3) educates existing home owners the value of property ownership

(4) experiment with legal, certified and insurable housing alternatives or building materials

    The RDP programme is not sustainable. In the long run people will realize that the only way to be empowered is to be allocated pieces of land and construct their own houses.
