Minister Tertuis Simmers to handover title deeds in Delft

8 June 2020

Today, 8 June 2020, Minister of Human Settlements, Tertuis Simmers will hand over 16 title deeds to deserving recipients in Delft.

This hand over has been made possible through our Enhanced Extended Discounted Benefit Scheme (EEDBS).

The title deed handover is part of the Department’s strategic goal in prioritising the elderly by ensuring ownership of their properties. The department believes that handing over title deeds gives people a sense of security, dignity and pride in having full ownership of their properties.

Minister Simmers said: “I’m looking forward to handing over these title deeds to our beneficiaries, particularly since 15 of the 16 recipients are pensioners, with the eldest being 84 – and youngest, 58-years old. As the Western Cape Government, we remain committed to improving the lives of our residents.”

There will be an opportunity for interviews and photographs.

Members of the media, kindly note the meeting point below, from which we’ll proceed to the houses of the beneficiaries, to individually handover their title deeds.

ALL MEDIA ARE INVITED TO ATTEND.
