The 150420 number of households represent 35, 7% of the households in Nkangala District. The increase could be due to new house built by Provincial Department of Human Settlements.

Accelerated service delivery is the key. Strong collaboration between the municipality, relevant national, provincial departments and Public Entities in prioritising building of houses should be considered.
