The controversial Red Ants security guards could be on their way to Cape Town. The Red Ants who have received criticism for their tough tactics are to remove all illegal squatters refusing to leave property.

The Weekend Argus reports that, MEC for housing Richard Dyantyi has warned that he was considering legislation to prevent people from squatting. Squatters who stay under bridges, on road edges and cemeteries could be removed by the Red Ants.

The Western Cape is not the first municipality to make use the Red Ants as municipalities such as Johannesburg, Ethekwini and Tshwane have already called in the men in red .

Neither the company nor the Cape Town municipality were at this stage prepared to discuss their future relationship.
