Khayelitsha residents said on Sunday they want an independent investigation into the allocation of RDP houses in the township.

Community members in Mandela Park have said Human Settlements MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela must ensure that the probe begins with immediate effect.They insist corruption continues to plague the allocation of government homes.

Residents have warned if this is not addressed they will halt all new developments in their area.

Community leader Loyiso Mpuku said they have proof of corrupt activities.

“Houses have been identified that are being sold in Mandela Park. The people receiving attend our meetings. We have seen that the government is not willing to take this issue seriously,” he said.
