Over 400 houses were handed over to people in Ikageng near Tlokwe, the North West human settlements department said on Saturday.

The 473 houses were handed over to residents by MEC Nono Maloyi on Friday, said spokesman Ben Bole in a statement.

Nono condemned allegations that the houses were handed over as part of the ANC’s election campaign.

He said that the process had been “continuing since the establishment of his department and the gesture will continue until government is content that the dignity of ordinary South Africans is restored”.

Nono said that the handing over of the houses, was part of the 20 years of freedom celebration.
