A new hospital is to be built in Diepsloot to provide services to residents in the township and surrounding areas. The Times reports that this was revealed by Gauteng MEC for Human Settlements Paul Mashatile during the official handover of new subsidised houses in Riverside View‚ near Diepsloot‚ in Johannesburg.

“We are going to provide for the building of a hospital. We are promising you in front of the premier (David Makhura) that we will build a new hospital‚” said Mashatile. He said the communities in Diepsloot and surrounding areas had to go to other townships to have access to hospitals.
