The Human Settlements Minister, Mmamoloko Kubayi, announced a R430 million bulk infrastructure project in the Moqhaka Local Municipality, located in the Free State province of South Africa.

The project, which is dedicated to Maokeng Extension 10 and 13, aims to provide 5,300 serviced stands for the community of Moqhaka in the Fezile Dabi District Municipality. Additionally, the infrastructure project includes areas designated for public amenities such as schools and recreational facilities.

Minister Kubayi highlighted that this project will contribute significantly to the local economy by providing employment opportunities and supporting local sub-contractors. “This will be in the form of labour, procurement of materials, diesel, and hiring of plant machines. As part of local economic development, 30% of the project value will be spent on local sub-contractors,” Kubayi explained.

Following the unveiling ceremony, the Minister engaged with the local community at Constantia Hall in Maokeng township. During this event, she delivered 445 title deeds to their rightful beneficiaries as part of the department’s Title Deeds Friday campaign. The campaign aims to fast-track the issuing of title deeds, supporting the restoration of dignity to rightful property owners. Minister Kubayi revealed that approximately 30,000 title deeds are ready for distribution nationwide, with the Free State province having the highest number, accounting for at least 16,000 title deeds.

Kubayi acknowledged that the main hindrance to the delivery of these title deeds is the establishment of townships. She urged municipalities to communicate their challenges during the planning process to avoid delays in issuing land titles.

The ceremony included the participation of other government officials, including Free State Premier Mxolisi Dukwana, Cooperative Governance Traditional Affairs and Human Settlements MEC Ketso Makume, and Moqhaka Local Municipality Mayor Ellis Mokatsane. Minister Kubayi utilized the opportunity to address the issue of contractors leaving projects incomplete. She emphasized the negative impact this has on communities and highlighted the department’s collaboration with the Security Cluster to combat criminal elements disrupting project implementation.

Kubayi also stressed the importance of councillors interacting with the community. She announced an agreement with Mayor Mokatsane that all ward councillors will hold community meetings within the next two weeks to engage with residents and provide updates on local developments.

MEC Makume reiterated the government’s commitment to resolving all backlogs and highlighted the significance of title deeds in restoring people’s dignity and confirming ownership of property. He stated that title deeds provide hope for the future and the security of having a home for generations to come.
