Maria Sibanda, who comes from Cape Town, has finally been issued with a document that legally makes her a home owner. Though she had acquired the land about a year back, she was not considered its legal owner until recently.

She was among the 2,000 people that were given their title deeds by Muzi Ntuli, a Johannesburg Councillor and Paul Mashatile, Gauteng Human Settlements MEC.

The old woman said: “It never occurred to me that one day I will actually become a homeowner. But it has happened. Now even if the Lord takes me I wouldn't mind."
