Gauteng governmnet working to resolve Lenasia South land occupations

Gauteng MEC for Infrastructure Development in Tasneem Motara says a team has been put together to address some of the challenges raised by protesting Lenasia South residents.

On Friday, angry community members protested over what they called the illegal mushrooming of informal structures in the area, leading to a confrontation with the alleged invaders.

Motara says the situation is complex as both communities [residents and invaders] have legitimate issues.

We have worked together with the community safety boards in the province and in the municipality to be able to put a stop to further new structures being put in place.
