Mashaba visited Linbro Park near the Jukskei River on Monday to investigate why 80 homes were demolished on Friday.
It is alleged that the court order used to carry out the evictions was obtained almost three years ago.
The Alexandra Shutdown Movement’s Sandile Mavundla said Mashaba had acted unlawfully and told the community that the structures should not be demolished.
The City of Johannesburg was also urged to provide relief for Alexandra residents, including trauma counselling, after many were left without shelter.
