South Africa is not much of a difference from the rest of the world when it comes to informal settlements. It's something that the government has tried to work on, by introducing the low-cost housing sytem which is something that's meant to help people that cannot afford to build their own homes. There's even rent to own houses that fall under different municipality which some people that have some money can purchase. The whole housing situation in Mzansi is something that's regarded as critical since people need to have proper houses.

Now, a Twitter user has shared a picture of an informal settlement next to a beach. This is something that's regarded as dangerous, since KwaZulu-Natal has been hit with floods recently. What happens when the ocean overflows? The people living next to the each will be easily affect, especially with Tsunamis that could hit the shorelines too. That's the thought of someone who haven't lived in such places. However, a Twitter user felt that South Africa is just a great country, whereby people can wake up to a beach view just next to their shack. "Uvuke nje on your shack nge beach view.. 😍😅 Kumnandi emzansi," said @__NgalondeNN on Twitter.

In most cases, the beach houses or houses next to oceans are usually built with bricks and they're secured. However, shacks at usually built with a zinc which can easily swept away by water. According to reports, the picture showed a place called Isiphingo Beach, just outside of Durban.

@Thendo_rsa said, "Until you get KZNed and you will say the government doesn’t care 😂"

@LuvuyoMaholwana said, "I see nothing wrong on this view, who said in such a place is for moneyed ppl. Let's all enjoy the beauty of the nature dispite of our financial status."
