TWO housing projects were handed over to the Gamalakhe community last week. Both projects were among the first the new municipality handed over this year.

Two weeks ago Ray Nkonyeni Municipality (RNM) mayor and the leadership handed over 96 houses to the community of Inkosi Mavundla at Pheshaya Komjika area in Ward 27.

The houses were given to beneficiaries who had asked to be moved from their area of origin in the time of political violence in the 1990s.

RNM spokesperson Simon April said these houses are in addition to the 1 004 houses built in the area as part of the KwaMavundla Rural Housing project.

The second handover was that of 35 title deeds to the community of Gamalakhe­ who live in old rental housing stock in some areas of wards 5 and 27.

April said this is the second batch of title deeds that were handed over as 86 title deeds had already been handed out.

One of the 35 beneficiaries was 93-year-old Ms Ncobela who had a birthday on the day.

Leadership visited Ncobela at her home because she could not be at the Gamalakhe Community Hall where other beneficiaries were waiting.

“Ms Ncobela was happy about having the paper confirming ownership of the property,” said April.

“As of now 121 title deeds have been handed over to Gamalakhe beneficiaries, there are 32 remaining. The 32 have already been registered at the deeds office and it is anticipated they will be transferred before the end of this financial year.”
