Land grabs: 'Parties are using the vulnerable to push own agendas'

MEC Dikgang Moiloa says some political parties are playing a dangerous game by moving people illegally to land to win votes.

The DA has called on President Cyril Ramaphosa to do everything in his power to prevent illegal land grabs in the country.

This follows reports of Alexandra residents illegally invading vacant land in Waterfall in Gauteng over the weekend.

Gauteng Human Settlements MEC Dikgang Moiloa says what happened over the weekend in Waterfall is a totally unacceptable situation.

Everybody who is a South African knows that the Constitution of this country provides for the homeless...but within the available means.

Dikgang Moiloa, Gauteng Human Settlement MEC

There is actually no doubt about the commitment of government to provide housing for the poor.

Moiloa says the provincial Government Human Settlement program is in the process of developing megacities which will help with overpopulated areas like Alexandra and Diepsloot.

He says illegal land invasion is a dangerous game played by some political parties as way to get votes.

This is a dangerous game because you are moving people to a land that doesn't have services. You are using the vulnerable to push your own agenda.

Dikgang Moiloa, Gauteng Human Settlement MEC

We need cool heads to deal with this situation but illegal land occupation is definitely a no no.

Dikgang Moiloa, Gauteng Human Settlement MEC

Moiloa says there is a plan and political parties needs to come to the party and talk about the issue of land acquisition clearly.

He says this issue needs to be handled in an orderly fashion and not allow lawlessness to take over.
