Minister of Human Settlement has reiterated that hostels in cities will be the thing of the past.

Sisulu announced the move during her budget vote speech in Parliament yesterday.
“We have heard your concerns‚” she said of the plight of those living in hostels.
She said her department would be looking at which of those hostel dwellers qualified for a government house or a housing subsidy.
Those hostels that had recently been upgraded would be used as “social housing” – particularly for working people under the age of 40.
