Many of the RDP houses, destined for local residents of Thokoza township outside Alberton has been taken by people from some 1800km away at Riemvasmaak, Northern Cape province. The Thokoza residents, mainly African, are upset that Coloureds or mixed race people have occupied the homes. Many of the DRP housing projects have been beset by problems ranging from poor workmanship, to corruption, to the homes not being finished as contractors have walked away from projects.Photo Greg Marinovich.
