COCT aims to provide Masi fire victims with permanent housing by the end of the year

The City of Cape Town says it aims to provide permanent housing to victims of the Masiphumelele fire by the end of this year.

More than 4 000 people were left homeless in December last year, when the fire tore through the informal settlement, near Fish Hoek in Cape Town.

The City says over 850 temporary units have been completed.
