EHOWZIT HAS RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT FROM THE HCM:

WELCOME ADDRESS BY THE MAYOR CLR NCP MQWEBU

AT THE HANDOVER OF PALMVIEW AND MARBURG TITLE DEEDS

Programme Director

MEC for Human Settlements and Public Works, MPL Ravi Pillay

The Mayor of Ugu District municipality, Cllr Ntombifikile Gumede

The Municipal Manager and all officials

Ladies and gentlemen from Merlwood, Palmview and Marburg

Good afternoon

We are gathered this evening for a very special occasion; the handing over of title deeds to more than 130 members of the community from Marburg, Palmview and Merlewood.

It is a special occasion because in as much as you have lived in these homes for many years, taking ownership means something completely different. The value of owning your own property cannot be underestimated. It is a means by which you are able to open certain doors, especially in the world of business. It is also an asset which then belongs to your family, and which you can pass on to future generations. We are very excited and wish to congratulate all of you on behalf of the municipality.

We are however mindful that not everyone will be able to get their title deed today. As most of you will know, the Provincial Department of Human Settlements approved a figure of just over 600 beneficiaries. Of that, more than 200 have already been processed. Tonight we are handing out those title deeds which have already been returned from the Deeds Office. The outstanding balance is either still being processed by our conveyancers, or is awaiting release by the Deeds Office.

Therefore I would like to urge all of us to remain patient. I am aware that this process has been fraught with delays, which I am sure have been explained in your interactions with our Estates Administration office under the stewardship of Mr Sbu Phili. We appeal for your continued cooperation as we seek to complete this process before the end of this year.

With those words I wish to welcome you ladies and gentlemen

I thank you

Cllr NCP Mqwebu

Mayor
