GIS – 15 November, 2017: The National Housing Development Company Ltd (NHDC) respects all the procedures put in place following the recommendations of the Independent Commission Against Corruption for the allocation of NHDC houses. Investigations in the allocation of houses from any institution are welcomed, since the NHDC works in total transparency.
The Managing Director of the National Housing Development Company Ltd (NHDC), Mr Gilles L’Entêté, made this statement on 13 November 2017 during a press conference in Rose-Hill, to outline the achievements of the NHDC since 2015 and to reassure those concerned that there is no cheating in the allocation of NHDC houses to applicants.
