#SOCA Makhubo: The quality of our roads has become worrisome. The Roads Agency  (JRA), JHB Parks and Zoo (JPZ) are hard at work as they continue efforts to improve our road infrastructure. We are happy to announce that the private sector has joined in our efforts.
#SOCA Makhubo: Human settlements are critical due to the legacy of apartheid, which had at its heart a spatial policy. The imprint of apartheid spatial policy has proved difficult to eradicate and has in fact become more entrenched since its abolition.
#SOCA Makhubo:

The outcome of these policies are some of the most inequitable, inefficient, unjust and unsustainable settlements in the world.
