The capacity of municipalities to deliver on housing.
Maluleke, Delca Petunia.
This study was undertaken to determine whether Gauteng municipalities, constitutionally obliged to provide low-cost housing to those who qualify for it, possessed the capacity to do so. The only Gauteng municipality not included in this research were Metsweding District Municipality. Pertinent literature was consulted and reviewed. In this qualitative research, the data were obtained from interviews and answers to questionnaires. Analysis showed that all the municipalities studied lacked the capacity to deliver on their mandate. Necessary capacity was found to be lacking in several areas. The report concludes with suggestions for rectifying this problem and thus, enabling municipalities to meet their housing delivery obligations.
