The Head of Department, Mr Mdu Zungu, and his Management and staff work at an unwavering pace to restore dignity and pride to the citizens of KwaZulu-Natal. Mr Zungu and officials from the Department were in Msunduzi Local Municipality today (14 June 2021) to accompany the Mayor, Cllr. M. Thebolla, in the handing over of 122 title deeds to Edendale DD (Imbali 1 and 2) residents. Working together with the National Department of Human Settlements and Msunduzi Local Municipality, a total of 184 properties will be transferred to residents in Imbali. The balance of 62 properties are in the transfer process.
The KZN Department of Human Settlements has, during MEC Sibiya's 100 days in office, already delivered 4 807 title deeds. The target for this financial year is 10 949 title deeds.
This initiative to ensure home ownership by the rightful beneficiaries in Imbali follows a weekend where the Head of Department and officials gave valid inputs towards a programme to mark MEC for Human Settlements & Public Works, Jomo Sibiya's first 100 days in office; accompanied the MEC to Alfred Duma Local Municipality to hand over title deeds to St Chads residents and to oKhahlamba Local Municipality to hand over a recently built house to 91- year old Gogo Mazibuko.
The high standard of delivery set by the Department’s Management, led by the hands-on Head of Department, is in keeping with MEC Sibiya's reflection that "all categories of staff understand their roles and fully commit to speed, efficiency and service delivery".
