President Jacob Zuma will hand over houses to the community of Danville in Pretoria on Mandela Day, the presidency said on Sunday.The Danville project is a "Flagship Project" for the eradication of the Bethlehem informal settlement in Pretoria West, which is occupied by poor white families, spokesperson Mac Maharaj said in a statement.

Zuma visited the area twice, in 2008 and 2010.

Residents raised a number of concerns, among them availability of social grants, the need for land to build houses for homeless and access to basic health, public transport and provision of electricity.

The South African Social Security Agent (Sassa) visited the Hermanstad area regularly for various services," Maharaj said.

A mobile clinic was provided by the Tshwane Municipality and streets lights were installed.

Council properties in the vicinity were rectified completely.
