Herman Mashaba made an elderly lady very happy this week after he handed her the title deed to her home.
A video was shared on social media which showed Herman Mashaba handing over a title deed to a gogo, who is visibly happy.
Taking to his official Twitter page, Mashaba shared the video of him handing over the title deed on Thursday.
He is heard telling the gogo she is now the owner of the house and no one would be able to take it away from her- not even the government.
The video sparked appreciation on social media, with a tweep thanking the Joburg mayor for his great service.
Jiki Chyna, who goes by the Twitter handle @mmlindwa, wrote: "Thank you Mayor, you are doing a good job, teach @MYANC how it's done, and that there is no room for corrupt government working for the people."
However, one social media user urged the mayor to call on the elderly to get their affairs in order before they die, especially now that they have their own property.
Boitumelo Mokhoase, @__boitumelo, commented: "Mr. Mayor while you on it, please encourage our elderly to draft their wills with any law firm for the remainder of this week. It's free to do so with attorneys as it's National Wills Week and they need those wills because those houses stir conflicts when they are no more."
