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.
