The eThekwini Municipality is currently illegally evicting families at gunpoint in Mpola. Thirty people already have been left homeless. The community requests all press to rush to the scene and to witness the rampant criminality of the eThekwini Municipality for themselves.
Five cars from the municipality arrived at 10am, with Blue Ants armed with rifles and shotguns. The demolition team is now breaking down brick houses. according to the demolition team the evictions were ordered by the notorious local ward Councillor Councillor Dimba.
The evictions, happening now, are illegal and criminal acts. There was no notice, no consultation, no court order, and no alternative accommodation provided.
Some families, whose homes already have been demolished, are at school and at work, and will return to find they have nowhere to sleep tonight. The eviction team demolished all the materials of the houses, including the roofs.
Some of the registration numbers demolition team’s cars are: NDM6904, NDM6902, NDM6903. The demolition team says the municipal official overseeing the eviction is Mr. Zulu (076 354 8921)
