AN undeniable highlight for Kouga Municipality in 2018 was the distribution of 1 827 historic title deeds to beneficiaries at Thornhill, Kruisfontein, Sea Vista, KwaNomzamo, Patensie, Pellsrus and Hankey.

“Our late Mayor, Elza van Lingen, started the programme at Thornhill on Human Rights Day, March 21, 2018,” Kouga Executive Mayor Horatio Hendricks said.

“After she passed away, the baton was handed to me and it was an absolute honour to continue the work she had started, knowing that each title deed was a means of empowering families economically and restoring their dignity.”

Hendricks said more historic title deeds would be distributed once verification has been completed.

“We expect to hand over at least a further 300 of these documents at Thornhill and KwaNomzamo over the coming months.”
