Evictions at Marlboro stadium to go ahead today
The city says it will remove the group because the stadium is not an ideal place to live in.
JOHANNESURG - Some residents living at the Marlboro Gardens Stadium say they will have nowhere to go if the City of Johannesburg goes ahead with a plan to evict them today.
The group were moved to Marlboro Gardens by the city after they were left homeless following their eviction from a low cost housing project they'd occupied illegally in nearby Alexandra.
The city served them with an eviction notice almost two weeks ago.
With the city saying it will fulfill its intention to the more than 60 people living at the stadium today, some have now appealed to the highest office in the land to come to their rescue.
One of the residents say she's had to part with her children after she could no longer afford to pay rent for a room in Alexandra and fears her next home will be on the streets of Johannesburg.
The city says it has no other choice but to remove the group because the stadium is not an ideal place for people to live.
