SHE was supposed to move into her brand new house this weekend, but that is not going to happen! Instead gogo Johanna Baloyi and her family remain squashed in a tiny shack while they wait for the completion of their new house because the City of Joburg has not approved the building plans.Daily Sun published an article in January about the Baloyi family in Orlando East, Soweto who were forced to cook in view of the neighbours after heavy rain damaged their house.Prophet Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng stepped in and offered to build the family a new house. Gogo Johanna said it hurt her to see an empty space where her mother’s house used to be. “We don’t know what’s going on. I was excited but now my smile is slowly fading because we thought the process would be finished by now. We are not asking for a house from the government. We already have a good Samaritan,” she said.Prophet Mboro said he was disappointed with the delay.“It makes me look bad. I went there and demolished their home. They are counting on me to build them a warm home but now it looks like I am failing them,” he said.“I don’t understand what is causing the delay.”Poppy Louw from the department of development planning said: “The building plan was submitted to the City. The plans examiner has made comments regarding the application which have been sent to the relevant party. The applicant must come to the Metro Centre to attend to the comments and re-submit the plans.”
