South Africans took to social media to share their disappointment with the government's idea of "affordable housing."
Taking to social media, a South African shared a photo of the government built housing for the less fortunate and it sparked quite the debate on Twitter.
The photo was shared on the social media platform by tweep @Sentletse on Thursday. He wrote he knew they could not expect double storey houses but the plain design of the homes were just disrespectful.
"I get it’s meant to be “affordable housing” but what the hell is this? Can developers please show people some respect," the post was captioned.
Briefly.co.za gathered the post sparked a debate on social media, with tweeps agreeing that the homes were nothing to be proud of.
One tweep even said the houses plain design resembles the toy homes used in the popular board game, Monopoly.
Social media users slammed the houses, adding it was not big enough to accommodate an entire family.
Social media user melow Mothiba, @MelowMothiba, wrote: "I saw this yesterday passing protea soweto, and I was telling my colleague that some developers are really messing up desperate people, I wonder if a king bed would fit in there."
Another tweep @BiggiePhats added: "Dear RDP tender folks & those in Gov.Depts, please don't build "houses" that you wouldn't want your own mother to live in?! @The_DHS @DRDLR_online @PresidencyZA we're not asking for mansions, allow the people to have a level of self-respect & dignity."
Other tweeps also shared photos of affordable homes they felt was unacceptable.
