PHOTOS: The land the EFF plans to invade

WHITE RIVER – Lowveld Media journalist, Stefan de Villiers, is on the scene where community members and EFF leader, Mr Collen Sedibe, confirmed that they would make good on their promise of occupying a piece of land in the vicinity of the Yaverland Train Station today. The land borders an unnamed local road that connects to the R536 and R538.

“We are suffering,” one community member said. He stated that the land had apparently been bought by the South African government ten years ago. “They paid R2 million for it,” the man said. “We want it now.” He added that the group had been fighting for their rights to the land for the past decade.
