Danie and Kotie Du Toit in front of their unfinished RDP house in Fetakgomo-Tubatse local minicipality in Burgerfort, Limpopo.

A white couple is among more than 70 families waiting for their RDP houses to be completed in a village near the town of Burgersfort, Limpopo.

Danie, 60, and Kotie du Toit, 57, have been living in GaMaepa village, a predominantly black community near Burgersfort, in the Greater Fetakgomo-Tubatse local municipality. More than 72 RDP houses in the municipality that has been accused of squandering R200m with an illegal deposit into VBS Mutual Bank, had been left unfinished since 2014.

Finally some common sense. We should help people based on their needs, and not based on the colour of their skin. Could we please change all laws accordingly.
They are now ready to join black families and leave squalor behind. White families who initially refused RDP houses in Mogale City because "blacks would rape their children" are now queuing to get them. The families had in the past two years resisted moves by the city to allocate RDP houses to them among blacks. More than 372 homeless white families have built shacks in Coronation Park in Krugersdorp. A section of the park also houses people living in caravans.

Yesterday the families queued at the Mogale City municipality offices with ID books in hand, ready to register for RDP houses.

Yes finally BBSA, although it looks like it has been happening all along, article is from 2011.

Good to hear, now can we change our rasist laws?
Affirmative action is still very much necessary in this country, but since we have democracy nothing is stopping you from mobilising for your party, winning the elections and changing all the laws you don't like, until then poor whites must register for RDP's in their areas, it is not forbidden.

I disagree, we need to grow our economy at a rapid pace. By growing the economy you will help everyone in South Africa. Having racist laws will not help to grow the economy.

People are campaigning for a more equal economy, not just a big one with the same minority at the top.

I have to agree. We have not yet fully realised the true African potential. AA ftw.

Good luck with that, in 25 years we will probably still have an unemployment rate of 27%.

In my view, the only way you can decrease unemployment and poverty is by growing the economy.
