We have been visited by the Mayor so they could hand out our Title Deeds.

I went with my father who is 71 years old and walked the long distance.

He has been staying in this house since it was hostels, which were later turned into family units.

We have been staying in houses with comprised of only one bedroom and kitchen, with a toilet next to it.

As a family of four, we have had to divide the bedroom to accommodate others, as the space became too small.

The rooms are so small that in one family has had to make the bedroom a sleping place to acommodate four souls.

The mayor gave people Title Deeds in areas that was build long after this area we are staying in. He mentioned names of people living in extentions 4, 5 and 6.

Why were we called and all old people had to go just to get no explanation from the mayor.

People were given papers posing with him on stage look like they have received the title deeds, only to dicover it was just reams of papers.

We have been duped.
