On 11 May 2018 the DA brought change to business owners in Soweto who have been waiting thirty years to own land by handing over title deeds. See photo here.
This forms part of the City of Johannesburg’s Land Regularisation Programme, which aims to redress the distribution of council-owned land.
This programme is important as it can become a catalyst for development that benefits the community, small businesses and developers. Where we govern, the DA is leading by example by ensuring that our people are becoming land owners.
Land ownership plays an important role in growing our economy. By handing over these title deeds, we are ensuring that our people who previously did not have an opportunity to own land are now given this chance.
This is how we are creating a South Africa that is alive with possibilities and builds a legacy for generations to come.
Come 2019, the DA will bring about Change across the province.
