CAPE TOWN - The findings of the Lwandle Commission of Inquiry are expected to be handed over to Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu on Tuesday.

A report will be finalised after the public hearings into the controversial evictions wrapped up in Cape Town on Friday.

More than 800 illegal settlers in Nomzamo were forcibly evicted off land owned by the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) in June.

The inquiry's spokesperson Vusi Tshose says the recommendations will be reviewed before it is handed over to the minister.

"We feel that we have done all the work in terms of the community field work. Now it's up to us to finalise and put some final points in our report."

African National Congress (ANC) provincial working committee member Rhoda Bazier was one of the last people to give evidence when she testified on Friday.

She says measures need to be implemented to monitor the process of providing houses for the poor in the Western Cape.
