The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) are said to be responsible for the renewed land invasions in Ga-Rankuwa according to Tshwane Mayor Randall Williams. The city demolished a number of residential structures and said that the EFF had failed in their attempts to administer land illegally.
The City of Tshwan, Executive Mayor said that metro police were deployed to demolish the structures but were then violently attacked by a group of people in EFF regalia.
Earlier this year, the EFF were accused of similar land grabs in Olievenhoutbosch. Williams said that the party’s PR councillor was found on the scene and is believed to have been responsible for the land grabs.
Tshwane is once again locking horns with the EFF in Pretoria, accusing the party of being behind the recent land invasions.
