Geraldine Mettler- Municipal Manager

Monday, 6 August 2018

Yesterday, 5 August 2018, a meeting took place with various role-players to find a solution to the illegal occupation of a piece of private land in Stellenbosch. Premier Helen Zille, the Minister of Community Safety Dan Plato, the Minister of Economic Opportunities Alan Winde, Executive Mayor Gesie van Deventer, the South African Police Service and I were among the participants at this meeting.

To our knowledge, the operation of removing the structures erected on the private land is going ahead. The Municipality continues to monitor the situation closely and provides assistance within our legal framework.  The Municipality has interdicts on Municipal land.

We continue tirelessly to provide as many housing opportunities as possible for all beneficiaries on our database.
