Strategies that local government could put in place to prevent poorly built houses.

  • The land on which the houses are to be built should be carefully selected, to ensure that houses could be built there safely.
  • Building inspectors should continuously assess the quality of workmanship and building materials, to prevent houses from crumbling.
  • The tender process should be transparent to combat fraudulent and corrupt actions by the parties involved.
  • Strict criteria should be set to assess the qualifications and capabilities of building contractors.
  • A system, like a hotline, should be in place, so that the public can report corrupt and fraudulent processes.
  • A combined task team, including government officials and community members, should act as a 'watch dog' in order to quality assure the whole project.
  • Steps should be taken against corrupt officials or contractors so that it serves as a deterrent for corrupt behavior in future.
  • Contractors that have been awarded tenders should be made public so that the community can inform officials of any suspected corruption.
