Bitou Municipality receives land for the community of Kurland


As part of commemorating Mandela International Day, the Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development, Mcebisi Skwatsha, handed over 86 hectares  of land to the Bitou Municipality. 

The land will be used to build houses for the community of Kurland.

In 2018, the municipality asked the department to consider availing the land, which is situated close to the village for the purpose of building houses to alleviate the overcrowding in the settlement. 

Skwatsha says the land has been transferred to the municipality.
