Handover of Keys for Covie and Kurland

Issued on 12 July 2021

Some residents of Covie and Kurland communities were the first to be handed keys to occupy the recently erected emergency housing units in the different wards of the Bitou Municipality. These were part of the 69 emergency housing units that were donated by the Department of Human Settlements for those residents that were affected by the fires in 2019. Various issues led to these units not to be erected in 2019 and it was stored at the airport.

The Bitou Council resolved that the needy beneficiaries must be identified in the all seven wards and that these units be given to them. This process got off the ground and on the 8 July 2021, Member of the Bitou Councils Mayoral Committee, Cllr. Monica Seyisi, stood in for the Acting Executive Mayor, Cllr. Sandiso Gcabayi, as well as Ward Councillor for Ward 1, Cllr. Jesicca Kamkam, handed over keys to beneficiaries from Kurland and Covie.

Ms. Mamoeketsi Khetsi from the Bitou Department of Human Settlements has indicated that the ablution facilities will be installed next week. She said that more of these units will be handed to selected beneficiaries in the other wards in the coming weeks.

The beneficiaries that included crèches and needy families were all very happy and expressed their gratitude to the Bitou Council for this gesture. Some did not have any decent roof over their heads for years whilst those that run creches in their small properties saw this as a welcome relief to their plight.
