Mangaung Metro monitoring after residents threaten land invasion


The Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality says it is monitoring Sunnyside Park, also known as the airport node outside Bloemfontein, after community members alerted it last week of a planned land invasion.
Municipal spokesperson, Qondile Khedama, says they have, among others, appointed a land invasion team consisting of legal services, police, intelligence agents and the city's law enforcement division. He says the municipality has activated systems to ensure that the planned land invasion is prevented beforehand.
Khedama says the metro will not tolerate any illegal land invasion. He says police have started questioning suspects and steps will be taken against those found guilty.
Khedama urged members of the community to report any illegal occupation of land by calling the following numbers:
Human Settlements and Housing: 051-400-5314
SAPS: 08000 10111
