AfriBusiness today obtained an urgent interim interdict on behalf of some of their members to thwart land grabbers who were illegally occupying land in Hammanskraal in the northern parts of Pretoria. The return date to finalise the matter in court is 8 January 2018.
“We warn the public to keep a watchful eye on their property – especially in the coming festive season, as trespassing frequently increases during this time of year. Section 25 of the Constitution guarantees the right not to be arbitrarily deprived of your rightful property. We therefore once again urge the SAPS and especially the Tshwane Metropolitan Police to proactively act, fulfil their duties and protect the public’s rights. We must protect every centimetre of property that is in the possession of rightful owners. We cannot allow South Africa to degenerate into a second Zimbabwe,” says Charles Castle, Manager of AfriBusiness’s Labour Law Advice Unit.
Property owners are advised to become a part of organised institutions such as AfriBusiness in order for us to protect the right to undisturbed possession of property in cooperation with property owners.
