Abstract

The current housing policy may be faulted for paying disproportionate attention to recent migrants living in informal settlements whilst falling short of adequately addressing the housing needs of coloureds and Africans who were born and bred in the apartheid-era townships, says ROBERT MONGWE, following research conducted in the Cape Town area.
