MEC Kegakilwe said, I’m pleased with the pace at which we are moving. We are giving effect to the commitment we made as government that there shall be houses, security and comfort. This event clearly shows that we are not paying lip service in our aim to improve the lives of our people. Our strategy is transparent, and we are effectively executing it. It is through processes such as these that the dignity of our people is restored.
As the North West government, we remain committed to accelerating human settlement delivery, while promoting social inclusion through the development of integrated, resilient and sustainable human settlements in an open opportunity society, added MEC Kegakilwe.
NWHC Board Deputy Chairperson Okgabile Dibetso-Bodibe stated that the handover of these title deeds is executed to decrease the existing title deeds backlog in North West and confirm home ownership to residents.
