On Friday, Maile met with municipal officials to discuss the title deeds backlog in the province.

Maile says that the backlog, which is close to 200,000, has been exacerbated by bureaucracy and other factors.

He explains that because some townships in the province have not yet been proclaimed by municipalities, many residents cannot have their properties registered.

You can't inssue a title deed to people who live in an area that is not proclaimed.
