A stalled 60-unit Housing Development Fund project in Inhambane is sparking outrage among the city’s residents. Of the 60 houses planned, 50 are partially completed, and construction of the remaining 10 houses has apparently been abandoned.
The unfinished works are felt to constitute a public danger, being used for prostitution, as outdoor latrines, and as a refuge for criminals. Residents want the projected handed over to a contractor who is able to see the project through to completion.
The O País team tried unsuccessfully – more than twice – to contact a Housing Development Fund representative for clarification. Unfortunately, none was ever available, although it was discovered that the Fund has no figures for the project, which was started six years ago.
