Pretoria News - - NEWS -

THE DA-led multi-party ad­min­is­tra­tion of Tsh­wane has at­tended to a to­tal of 4 406 land in­va­sions in the city since the be­gin­ning of the year.

Of the 4 406 un­law­fully erected struc­tures, the city de­mol­ished 3 161, it said.

Between Jan­uary and June, the coun­cil re­ceived and at­tended to 2 744 com­plaints and de­mol­ished 2 271 il­le­gal struc­tures.

From July to Septem­ber alone, 1 662 com­plaints were dealt with and 890 un­law­ful struc­tures re­moved.

“Res­i­dents should not al­low them­selves to be used as po­lit­i­cal pawns by the ANC in Tsh­wane, which can­not ac­cept its elec­toral de­feat,” said may­oral spokesper­son Samkelo Mgob­ozi.

He said there was a le­gal process through which the re­quired hous­ing was al­lo­cated. – Staff Re­porter
