The City is doing its utmost to ensure beneficiaries receive their opportunities at our subsidised and affordable housing projects across the metro while ensuring staff and contractors are protected while on duty. We have enhanced security and increased monitoring at City housing projects so that we can deliver opportunities to some of the most vulnerable and poor residents in the city. </p><p> </p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:802px;" /> </figure>​​'We thank the community for their ongoing support and we will do what it takes to deliver housing opportunities despite the many challenges. The City's six-point plan is in action to help reduce the incidents of violence, criminality, and extortion at our housing projects which is threatening our affordable housing projects. We urge the community to be our eyes and ears and to assist us by reporting any illegal activity at City housing projects in their areas. The City is offering rewards of R5 000 for information leading to arrests of anyone targeting City housing projects across the metro,' said Councillor Booi.<br><br></span><span><p><br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:802px;" /> </figure>​​</span><p><span style="font-weight:700;">Anonymous tip offs are welcome:</span></p><p>Residents can report crime and by-law offences anonymously, 24-hours a day, on 0800 1100 77.<br></p><p><strong>End</strong><br></p>2023-03-08T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#02d14be4-3d23-41a6-b14a-7c4732a9aa7d;L0|#002d14be4-3d23-41a6-b14a-7c4732a9aa7d|BNG;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#235f790f-705c-4a8b-9689-35a2152e7476;L0|#0235f790f-705c-4a8b-9689-35a2152e7476|housing projects10
