Cape squatters forced off land

Cape Town - Cape Town police were monitoring a site at Seawinds, near Lavender Hill, on Saturday morning, following the forced removal of illegal squatters on a municipal plot. Pieter Cronje, spokesperson for the city of Cape Town said the SA police and their metro colleagues moved in to remove illegal structures at 08:00.

He said the police were enforcing a Cape High Court interdict granted to the city, prohibiting the illegal occupation and erection of structures on city land. Cronje said a provisional order was made final by the court last week. He said illegal structures on the Seawinds' plot had escalated from three at 17:00 on Friday to 37 on Saturday. News24
