Public Lwandle eviction hearings resume
The hearings are dealing with the evictions, including the torching and demolition of 200 dwellings, of 849 families on 2 and 3 June this year. The land the families were evicted from is owned by SANRAL.
This morning ward councillor Mbuyiselo Matha testified that residents occupied private land in Lwandle and had no access to water and electricity. He says there was a meeting at Strand police station between officials from Sanral and City of Cape Town.
The hearings entered their second week, after last week saw Cape Town city mayor Patricia de Lille insisting the city was not behind the evictions.
The findings of the hearings will be assessed by Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu.
