Land grab in Pietermaritzburg


495

A group of people have invaded private land in Hilton outside Pietermaritzburg, claiming it belonged to ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema, according to a report on Monday.

Land owner Rusty Roodt told The Witness newspaper he would approach the High Court in Pietermaritzburg on Monday to obtain a court order to stop people from invading his land.
 
He said the police had done nothing to stop the land invasion at Winterskloof in Hilton.
 
One of the land invaders reportedly said: “We are continuing what we started when we marched on Thursday and Friday to reclaim what is ours," in reference to an economic freedom march from Johannesburg to Pretoria led by Malema.
