Coronavirus: Images of Temporary Houses for Informal Settlements

The Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation, Lindiwe Sisulu, today visited the site where temporary residential units (TRAs) are being built to accommodate people from densely populated informal settlements.

The country plans to decrease the headcount in 29 critically overcrowded informal settlements across Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, the Western Cape and Eastern Cape as COVID-19 continues to spread.

In order to curb the spread of COVID-19, the country imposedย a 21-day lockdown that has since been extended by two weeks to the end of April. However, on Thursdayย President Cyril Ramaphosa announced five-level plan to ease lockdown.

Sisulu today received a status update on the work that is being done to ensure the densely populated informal settlements are de-densified in order to curb the spread of the COVID-19.

She visited the site of Temporary Residential Units that are being built to accommodate the residents of Plot 323 in Wilgespruit, Johannesburg, who have been living in tents for almost four years.
