A matter of responsibility 31/05/1992 NSUNT
IT is a social malady. Many developers in the housing development industry are inflicted with the "cost factors" mentality. Their preoccupation with cost factors is to the detriment of the quality and comfort of the houses they build. Indeed, it is a sad tale of how obsession with profits has blinded people to their social responsibilities. The problem is most developers are harbouring the illusion that they have done enough for the country. This can be seen from their eloquent but pathetic pleas of "there is a limit to what developers can do" and "don't expect us to be social engineers as well". The truth is there is still a lot to be done and a long way to go in meeting the housing needs of the country. The private sector needs to play a major role in fulfilling the nation's dream of a home-owning democracy by the year 2000. They cannot abnegate their social responsibility.
