CAPE TOWN - The City of Cape Town has found there are over 2,500 affordable housing units for sale in Manenberg, Gugulethu and Elsies River.

Municipal officials conducted unannounced visits to housing offices in these areas on Wednesday.

This forms part of a directive to mayoral committee members to establish the state of the issuing of title deeds to beneficiaries.

The City's Siyabulela Mamkeli says: “The Elsies River housing office has embarked on an outreach to encourage tenants to take up the City’s offer on ownership, whereby title deeds will be registered in their names.”
