The Department of Human Settlements (DHS) has a mandate that is integral to the effort of the government to change the lives of South Africans for the better. This includes transforming the apartheid spatial and land and development patterns of social and racial exclusion. During the previous administrative term, we stayed true to the mandate by continuing to build and augment the work already done in creating sustainable human settlements and improving the quality of life for all households.
