More Title deeds for 700 new owners in Mpumalanga

Sibande MP

As part of the Mpumalanga provincial ANC Government efforts to restore the dignity and trust of the people of that province, more than 700 beneficiaries were recently presented with RDP houses and title deeds, in areas such as Bethal, Secunda and Ermelo. This is in addition to the 2013/14 financial year, where more than 5000 title deeds were delivered to people in other areas of the province. This is a good story to tell, as we recall that in the past people did not have the security of full tenure to their properties or houses.

The ANC believes that the issuing of title deeds is key in ensuring security of tenure for all the beneficiaries, which is extremely important as it allows home owners to make decisions that will improve their living circumstances and also offers a sense of pride and of belonging to beneficiaries in their communities, as well as an asset for those in the family to continue to take care of one another. The ANC welcomes the Mpumalanga government`s plans to issue out about 10 000 more title deeds in this financial year alone, as well as its commitment to continue to hand over Title deeds throughout the province as soon as the Deeds Office releases them.

I thank you
