SA to build 200 000 houses in two years

first_img27 February 2014 The South African government will build 216 000 houses and connect 905 000 households to electricity over the next two years, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan told Parliament on Wednesday. This is in addition to other housing schemes the state has embarked on in partnership with the private sector and public-private development institutions. Delivering his fifth Budget speech in Cape Town, Minister Gordhan said the housing budget for the 2013/14 financial year was R143-billion. Between 1994 and 2013, the government built over 2.7-million houses across South Africa. The National Development Plan (NDP) recommends that responsibility for housing shift to the country’s municipalities in order to improve coordination. All metro municipalities have been directed to implement housing programmes. The Human Settlements spending focus over the next two years will be on transferring grants to provinces and municipalities to fund the delivery of low-income housing, the purchase of land to upgrade informal settlements, and the upgrade of some informal settlements, Gordhan said. The urban settlements development grant is expected to deliver more than 215 000 housing units and upgrade 92 000 services sites in informal settlements. The integrated city development grant, which is being introduced in this year’s Budget, will ensure that large, low-income communities on the urban edge are better connected to centres of economic and social activity through investments in public transport. The Treasury says municipalities will receive the grants on condition that they produce built environment plans and that these plans support better coordination of investments and are aligned to national development plans.

Silva – We lost our focus

first_imgEverton manager Marco Silva rues his side’s lack of concentration after they managed to draw 2-2 against Watford despite taking an early lead.Richarlison gave Everton the lead in the 15th minute, but Coleman’s own goal and Doucoure’s header completed the comeback for Watford within three minutes in the second half.Lucas Digne rescued a point for Everton six minutes into stoppage time with a stunning free-kick from 25 yards.“The own goal is not fortunate as well,” he added. “It (the situation surrounding Richarlison’s goal) is part of the game and I understand Javi Gracia’s view in that moment,” Silva told Sky Sports.“It was possibly offside. I didn’t see it but he told me he was offside. After that, I didn’t see many chances for Watford.“The second half was different. They reacted and scored twice in three minutes but after the own goal and a missed penalty, I don’t understand how we can talk about fortune.“The game is not just about the end of the last minutes.Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

They had a lot of long balls up to Troy and Troy is a really strong player.“We knew before the match they would do that and they started to create more problems. At that moment, we had to put our quality on the pitch as well and play our game.“In the second half, our performance wasn’t normal and wasn’t the best. The game started to become difficult for us and we have to understand that was our fault.“Of course, we tried to make the fans proud of our team and we wanted to give them three points tonight.

An ordinary fare

first_imgBetween 1 to 2 pm only on Mondays madam, says the voice on the other end when I call up to confirm if walk-in is an option for outsiders in Rajasthan Bhawan’s canteen. Sensing my interest in the Rajasthani cuisine, he immediately adds that anybody could walk-in on any day of the week but the Rajasthani thali or platter is a once-a-week affair at the canteen. So, I waited for almost a week for that preordained lunch hour to gorge on the delicious Rajasthani platter here in the Capital. And when the day approached, monsoon, with all its splendour, had finally arrived in the Capital, casting a perfect setting for my lunch. I started out early to make it on time; well, I had only a bracketed hour-long time for the meal.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Walking inside the foyer of Rajasthan Bhawan, I glided down a step of stairs to find the canteen in a corner. A sizeable window in the canteen peeps into a hall with tables dressed in white linen and plastic covers set around wooden seats. Amongst the first few to arrive, I was delighted to make it on time. The attendant however informed me that I was early for lunch and food will be served by 1 pm. By and by, the hall started filling up with seemingly in-house guests and bureaucrats and it was half past 1 by the time the thalis made their first appearance. Indian Standard Time dutifully observed! Turning into a one man army, one attendant whizzed around the hall distributing thalis. By the time my moderately warm thali arrived, it was well past 1:30 pm.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixI scanned the thali and noticed the special daal-baati-churma alongside a dish of mix vegetable, gatta curry (gram flour dumplings in curry), rice and chapatis. Baati was bang on, crunchy and smoky in texture and the finely coarse churmawas mildly sweet. But what remained elusive was the conspicuous absence of ghee in the course. What stood out for me was the simple and tangy gatta curry.I have never imagined eating daal-baati-churma without ghee; it seems dry and takes down the entire experience by several notches. Well, the food came in late, the ghee never arrived, and there was nothing in the tapestry or up on the walls to hook onto.  Give this one a miss, without batting an eyelid.Meal for two : Rs 220 onwardslast_img read more
