Payments for a Western Cape housing project in Middelpos have been suspended following claims of corruption around site allocation.
The province's human settlements department says it is probing allegations of corruption against the outgoing Saldanha municipality, relating to the allocation of up to one-thousand-350 sites to housing beneficiaries.
The area had been part of the ANC-controlled Saldanha Bay municipality. The DA took over the reins following last week's local government elections.
