Minister Aware of State of Minestone Houses

Governance

The Minister of Infrastructure, Science and Technology, Mr Nonofo Molefhi, says he is aware that some low cost BHC houses in Minestone, Francistown are still not electrified.

Mr Molefhi was responding to a question in Parliament from Francistown East MP, Mr Buti Billy, on behalf of lands and housing minister, Mr Prince Maele. The houses in question, the minister said, were small, old and substandard hence it was no longer cost effective to improve them in their current form.

Therefore, he said, there were no plans to electrify or improve the houses, adding that “instead, the intention is to relocate the occupants of these houses and then redevelop the area.”

Mr Billy wanted to know if the minister was aware that some low cost BHC houses in Minestone, Francistown were still not electrified and when would they be electrified.
