MMC for Housing in the City of Joburg Cllr Mlungisi Mabaso, will on Wednesday, 18 November 2020, commence with the rollout of over 150 title deeds to housing project beneficiaries in Kanana Park, south of Joburg.
The area is made of three townships with the total yield of 3373 stands and an approved general plan. Kanana Park Proper has 596 stands, Kanana Park Extension 1 has 788 and Kanana Park Extension 2 has 1989 stands.
To date, the City has issued out over 2400 title deeds in the three areas. It is for this reason, that MMC Mabaso has opted to hand over the remaining batch to furnish the resident of Kanana Park with dignity and to redress the injustices of the past.
According to MMC Mabaso, title deeds are legal documents that prove legal ownership of property under South African law.
The government of local unity is determined to provide our residents with home ownership through various means and rapidly through the issuing of title deeds. The City has started issuing title deeds robustly and we will continue to issue them in all seven regions to ensure residents are given dignity.
