Gauteng Human Settlements MEC, Paul Mashatile, says he has made an agreement with the mayor to stop evictions in Hammanskraal.
He says the City of Tshwane will start planning development for residents currently staying in the area.
On Monday, the City removed shacks of people occupying the land illegally.
The mayor said let's stop evictions, let's agree that we will count these people properly. And ensure that those that have been settled there for a while, we look at an orderly development for them.— Paul Mashatile, Gauteng Human Settlements MEC
From this evening they can sleep there in peace, but we did say to them don't allow more other people who were not here to come, because we want to look at you who were here.— Paul Mashatile, Gauteng Human Settlements MEC
