900 Mlaba Village residents receive title deeds
​It was a joyous day at Mlaba Village, in Hammarsdale,
when over 900 residents became rightful home owners
during a title deeds handover ceremony which was
attended by Deputy Minister for Human Settlements,
Water and Sanitation Pamela Tshwete, KwaZulu-Natal
MEC for Human Settlements and Public Works Peggy
Nkonyeni and the City’s executive leadership.
THERE was a euphoric atmosphere as over 900 Mlaba Village residents in Hammersdale, west of Durban, received title deeds at an event held on 13 October. The residents could not contain their excitement as they became the rightful owners of their homes.

The title deeds hand-over was officiated by Deputy Minister for Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation Pamela Tshwete together with KwaZulu-Natal MEC for HumanSettlements and Public Works Peggy Nkonyeni accompanied by eThekwini Municipality executive leadership.

Deputy Minister Tshwete said the handover is yet another clear demonstration of government’s commitment to restore dignity and create a better life for all. “Being able to witness the level of happiness from the recipients of the title deeds melted my heart.

This was indeed confirmation that we are doing something right as government.” Deputy Minister Tshwete said this government was the first to issue title deeds to people and will continue to do so as being the legal property owner is “a big deal and is also a passport to participate in the economy”.

Chairperson of the Governance and Human Resources Committee Councillor Mpume Sithole, who was acting on behalf of eThekwini Mayor Mxolisi Kaunda said: “These indeed are proud moments where we as the City move towards the attainment of Freedom Charter objectives of which housing delivery and ownership form part of.” Councillor Sithole said the City aims to continue to provide residents with a sense of security and pride by having full ownership of their properties while exploring other new housing models to address the housing delivery backlog.
