The Western Cape Housing Department is taking the Mandela Park resident in Khayelitsha to court.

The department is claiming that the residents have illegally occupied the houses for the past three years.

Housing Minister in the Western Cape Bonginkosi Madikizela says the department will not tolerate disruption of the system from unruly people.

“We went to court to apply for eviction order because we can not allow the situation where the people can just occupy the houses they do not belong to them,”said the Minister.

Madikizela adds that the actually houses beneficiaries are now victims of the invaders.

“It is not far for the people who their houses were invaded three years ago,” added Madikizela.

Meanwhile, the residents are saying their worst nightmares are once again revealed.

Spokesperson for the Mandela Park Backyarders Mabhuti Matyida says the people are being evicted and a lot are being served with eviction letters.

“People who do not have the title deeds are being chased away from the houses to the streets,” said Matyida.

The matter will be heard in the Cape High Court tomorrow.
