WITNESS- HERMANUS TENSE FOLLOWING LAND GRAB ATTEMPT

HERMANUS- Hermanus the Overberg town has been described by a witness as a ghost town.

Violent protests saw a satellite police station, at least one vehicle and a library come under attack.

Failed land grabs last week sparked the violence.

Watch- Jeff Radebe reiterate that land grabs are illegal.

Police have arrested several people after the protests.

MEC for Western Cape Human Settlements Bonginkosi Madikizela said the land issue must be addressed but in the proper manner and done legally.

Madikizela commented on EFF’s motion to change the Constitution to allow land without compensation, he said politicians must act responsibly.

He added, “I think this mad idea by the ANC and EFF that if you expropriate land without compensation, it will speed up reform… it’s a mad idea. We are in this situation. It was sparked by that motion tabled by the EFF which was supported by the ANC.”

The DA has called for President Cyril Ramaphosa to act on the illegal land grabs around the country.
