JOHANNESBURG - Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula has called on military veterans to move into newly-built flats.
Mapisa-Nqakula says the flats may not meet the original specifications, but it will offer veterans some comfort.
"I want to make an appeal, [if] you are needy and destitute and know of a military veteran who lives under a bridge, please allow that veteran to come forward and grab that opportunity," she said.
