The Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality has warned people who decide to illegally invade land that they will face prospects of being evicted or arrested.

Several people have been invading land belonging to the Council around Ekurhuleni specifically in Tembisa. EMM spokesperson Lebogang Ramashala said fighting the scourge of land invasions requires joint participation of all stakeholders and members of the public.

Ramashala said the reason why we are discouraging people from spotting a piece of land and deciding to go settle on it is that, it could actually pose a danger to themselves.

She further said as people are aware Ekurhuleni is formally a mining city so a lot of the land is either dolomitic or it lies on top of old mines.

“A lot of the land that is occupied illegally is found to be laying either on the flood line or is water locked, so when there are rains and floods it increases the chances of those households succumbing to disaster” Ramashala added.
