Land Invasions - Ekurhuleni Metro Fights back

Pretoria - The Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality has issued a stern warning to land invaders that it will not tolerate any land invasion in the region.

“We shall not tolerate any form of land invasion and thus issue a warning to anyone who may be thinking of doing the same. We shall not hesitate to act decisively on such matters,” warned municipal spokesperson Zweli Dlamini.

The warning comes after the scores of people invaded a piece of land in Dalpark, Brakpan, on Saturday. The invaders were removed on Sunday by the municipality.

Dlamini said the municipality and the SAPS moved swiftly to evict people who had illegally erected shacks in Dalpark and authorities are currently patrolling the area to monitor the situation.
