As part of King Sabata Dalindyebo Municipality’s commitment to provide homes to the needy and restore their dignity, the Municipality has planned and executed the construction of the houses that were previously blocked.
As a result, the Executive Mayor, Cllr. Nyaniso Nelani, flanked by the Portfolio Head for Human Settlement, Cllr. Nombulelo Sibeko and Human Settlement officials held a gathering on December 19, 2023, for the families set to receive the keys to their new houses.
A total of 28 housing units were officially handed over to the beneficiaries. Tears of gratitude welled up in the eyes of the recipients as the mayor handed over the keys, symbolizing not just the tangible ownership of a home but also the restoration of dignity and hope.
Talking to the recipients, the mayor mentioned that KSD Municipality is committed to ensuring that people’s lives are changed for the better and that human dignity is restored. Furthermore, the Executive Mayor encouraged communities to guard these housing units against potential vandalism and illegal sales.
The new homeowners conveyed their sincere gratitude, stating that this project has had a lasting impact on their lives. Wards that benefited from this programme included Wards 4, 30 and 9, respectively.
