Heartless demolitions of houses in Joburg

by a Concerned Resident…The end of lock down episode 1 did not end smoothly for many people in the city of Joburg with claims that people have occupied land illegally in the South of Joburg in Lawley. Sadly this is happening when we are facing a serious life threatening virus. The City of Joburg yesterday demolished houses of people who don’t qualify for a bond or even an Rdp house. It broke my heart to witness people’s houses destroyed when the country is in lock down and the City of Joburg workers are expected to be staying at home, maintaining social distance. The big question is how can we defeat the pandemic when many people are in the streets with their houses demolished and where will all these people go?
