Antonia Masuku was another recipient who had written to the president for her land when the government assumed office. He promptly responded, and she successfully acquired her land allocation.

Masuku is happy to have been granted her land title. She noted that the process was smooth.

“I feel excited to know that I am 27 years old now I own a land. I got the land in January and in August I got the title,” Shaneeza Hussain, another beneficiary said.

Minister of Housing and Water, Collin Croal, who was overseeing the exercise noted that it is part a process to ensure that persons receive their ownership documents in a timely manner.

“We want to ensure that once you get the land and you go through the entire process, in a short space of time, persons must be able to get their titles, that ownership document,” Minister Croal underscored.
