“As part of the City, to guarantee land rights and full property security, the City has embarked on a process to ensure beneficiaries are properly provided with title deeds. These beneficiaries were invited to verify their details in order to initiate the process and get their title deeds. I delivered all the invites to these residents a day prior to the handover, to inform them that the City will be giving them their houses.
