Through the ‘bietjie-bietjie maak meer (bit by bit) approach, at least three housing developers have been allocated 200 housing units, respectively, to be spread across the villages in Moretele local municipality which is 100 percent rural. The entire project is worth over R25 million and should be completed before end of January 2018.
