Minister Sisulu visits mixed use development project promoting inclusive housing, social amenities and open spaces, commercial and industrial opportunities


On Sunday 14th June 2020 Ms Mahlengi Bhengu, Chairperson of the Gauteng Partnership Fund (GPF), Chief Executive Officer Simphiwe Dzengwa and Chief Investment Officer, Ms Vinolia Mashiane accompanied Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation Minister, Lindiwe Sisulu at the handing over of houses at the Elijah Barayi village in the West Rand.


“The Gauteng Partnership Fund is delighted to be a turnkey partner in the initiative that resulted in today’s event in which we celebrate the handing over of housing units to communities in the Elijah Barayi Village,”said Ms Mahlengi Bhengu.


This project is an example of what can be achieved through productive partnerships between all three spheres of government, development finance institutions, the private sector, and civil society to move people from informal settlements to the dignity of formal housing.


The core mandate of the Gauteng Partnership Fund is to raise and structure the capital required for the implementation of mega projects in Gauteng. We focus on turnkey development by providing property management services for strategic property assets that are transferred to the province for this purpose.


Ms Mahlengi Bhengu stated that the Elijah Barayi Mega Project is one such initiative in which GPF worked closely with government, the private sector, and communities to deliver much-needed housing in the Merafong Local Municipality. When completed the project will successfully deliver almost 12 500 housing units as well as schools, social amenities and commercial developments.


This will contribute greatly to the eradication of informal settlements on the West Rand and address the dire shortage of housing in the province.

The project is making a significant economic impact within the community through job creation and support for local suppliers, small and medium enterprises and companies owned by women and the youth.

To date the project has delivered 587 completed units and a further 2 318 units which are rapidly nearing completion. If you look around the area you will notice many other buildings that are in different stages of construction.

GPF Awarded Clean audit by the AGSA

The Gauteng Partnership Fund (GPF) received a clean audit opinion for the year ended 31st March 2015.

This was a remarkable achievement and an accolade for the GPF as it was acknowledged by the Audit General of South Africa that to sustain such a clean audit report involves a lot of hard work and dedication from the GPF team.

Also it would not have been possible to receive such a clean audit report without the guidance, leadership and support of our Executive Authority, the Gauteng Department of Human Settlements and the GPF Board.

“GPF has been attaining clean audits for more than eight consecutive years,” says the Chief Executive Officer of GPF, Mr Boni Muvevi.

“The attainment of clean audit is underpinned by our value of executing our housing mandate in a transparent, accountable and ethical manner,” Boni emphasized.
