A JOINT HOUSING project between ADC Building and Maintenance and  the National Housing Corporation (NHC) appears to have stalled.

The West Terrace/Durants housing project was one which would extend the housing area in the districts, placing homes on a previous piece of bushy land. The sign announcing the project reads 72 lots would be made available with land sizes ranging from 3 203 to 6 582  square feet and house sizes from 790 to 1 344 square feet.

However, when a MIDWEEK NATION team visited the site yesterday, there was no activity. The work hut  was locked and empty  and its windows broken.

Outside, there were trenches with blue water pipes and mounds  of debris piled at various locations. There were about five or six houses  in various states  of construction. (CA)

The truth is suddenly proving very difficult for this government to handle, The NHC spent close to three million a month from the Treasury on housing no financial statements showing how and still projects are incomplete and people wanna pretend this government is transparent, Stupes!
