Beneficiaries receive title deeds in Harare

07 Sep 2022 in Where We Govern

On 07 September 2022, the City of Cape Town handed over the first 12 title deeds to beneficiaries in Phase Two of the R134,3 million Harare Infill housing project in Khayelitsha. Title deeds provide formal ownership to residents and unlock economic opportunities for future generations.

Mayoral Committee Member for Human Settlements, Councillor Malusi Booi and dignitaries celebrated with the first 12 title deed beneficiaries of Phase 2 of the Harare Infill housing project. Over the coming months, title deeds will be handed over in areas across the metro. This year, the City handed over title deeds in Roosendal, Belhar and Mfuleni among others.

To date, 84 title deeds have been issued to first-time home owners in Phase 1 and the first 12 title deeds were handed over today to residents in Phase 2 of the R134,3 million Harare Infill housing project in Khayelitsha.

‘The City is committed to addressing the inequality of the past where the majority of our residents were denied ownership of property. Security of tenure is a priority for the City’s Human Settlements Directorate and we will continue to ensure that title deeds are handed over to first-time property owners across the city.

‘The Harare Infill project is making incredible progress and just last week, our teams handed over an additional 15 homes to residents. Thus far, 210 homes have been handed in Phase 2. The Harare Infill housing project will provide opportunities to 900 qualifying beneficiaries, which includes 417 opportunities in Phase 1 and 483 homes in Phase 2.

‘The City thanks all teams in Human Settlements who have made this day possible and we look forward to providing homes and title deeds to more beneficiaries in the coming weeks,’ said Councillor Booi.
