100 Year old granny becomes a homeowner

Minister Bonginkosi Madikizela will on Thursday, 21 July 2016 handover a title deed to 100 year old Ms Johanna Carolus. Carolus lives with her family in the house, including her 98 year old sibling. They have lived in the Blanco house in George for all their years.

The title deed handover is part of the Department’s strategic goals to prioritise the elderly in gaining a sense of ownership for their houses. The department believes that handing over title deeds gives people a sense of pride and joy that they are owners of the property they live in.

The department always encourages maintenance and responsibility for those houses when handing over the title deeds.
