CAPE TOWN - A date for the first round of public hearings involving the evictions of Nomzamo residents has been set.
Hundreds of families were forcibly removed in June from land owned by the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral).
The move was initiated by the roads agency and r eceived public backlash, prompting government to intervene.
Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu then established a task team to investigate the forced evictions.
It will be the first time those directly involved in the evictions will be given a podium to state their case.
Department spokesperson Vusi Tshose says several ministries would make oral submissions on Monday.
"This is the first round of the hearings, which will be focussed on the entities involved."
