Attempted land grab thwarted
Early on Thursday last week people attempted to mark out plots where they intended to settle illegally on a vacant piece of land in KwaNonqaba.
According to police feedback, the situation was continuously being monitored by municipal law enforcement officials.
About eight people remained in the area after law enforcement officers intervened and they appeared to continue with clearing tracts of land. Thursday’s incident followed earlier attempts at a land grab in this area.
Residents of Elangeni in KwaNonqaba attempted to settle on an empty stretch of land on Freedom Day, Wednesday 27 April.
A week prior to that an attempted land grab was also thwarted. Reports that the people involved in the attempted land grap on Thursday last week had become unruly, could not be confirmed.
At the time of going to press no structures had been erected.
