Violent protests in Daveyton
The Ekurhuleni Municipality protesting Daveyton residents have illegally invaded council land.
JOHANNESBURG - The Ekurhuleni Municipality has condemned this morning's violent protests in Daveyton, saying residents have illegally invaded council land.
The municipality says the land has been earmarked for those living in Bapsfontein under the instruction of the Constitutional Court.
Ekurhuleni's Themba Radebe says, "We are appealing to the people to refrain from illegal activity, we condemn that. We're saying, let the leadership come back to us, let us talk, let us address this issue because we cannot ignore the court's decision to relocate people to that land."
Police are monitoring the scene after reports that motorists were being intimidated.
