LENASIA - The African National Congress (ANC) in Gauteng said on Sunday, more people allegedly duped into buying government land illegally are cooperating with authorities and giving them quality information.

Several structures were demolished in Lenasia south, extension 13 and 4 in November.

Since the demolitions started the Department of Housing in the province pleaded with residents who were duped into buying property to come forward.

“We are really pleased by the fact that affected residents are coming to the fore,” said the ANC's David Makhura.

“That’s very different.

“It’s not 11 people. 

“We are talking about substantial cooperation amongst all the people that are affected.”
