Marikana beneficiaries verified
RESIDENTS of Marikana, near Rustenburg, have themselves verified the list of beneficiaries for 292 “breaking new ground” housing units that are part of phase one of the Marikana housing project, North West’s Local Government and Human Settlements departments said yesterday. They, in partnership with Rustenburg municipality, embarked on an “intense and vigorous process” to verify the beneficiaries list, spokesman Ben Bole said. Officials from both departments and the municipality addressed Marikana residents in a packed community hall, where the beneficiaries list was read out. Residents confirmed that those listed were legitimate beneficiaries of the greater Marikana area.
