Lease on Summerstrand Rifle Range Ended

Public Works Minister, Thulas Nxesi, says that the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) lease of a rifle range in Summerstrand has been terminated at the request of the landlord.

He was replying to a written question in the National Assembly on the number of leases his department had terminated.

The Summerstrand lease was signed in January 1982 and was for an “indefinite period”.

Nxesi said that in total leases costing the department R523.7 million a year had been terminated in the Port Elizabeth Region which covers the western part of the province.

The department has also terminated a lease signed in January last year for 1 Trinder Villas in Port Elizabeth that was costing R71 680.37.

Also terminated was the annual lease of a property in Bethelsdorp as the client department had not requested its renewal. - MetroMinutes.
