Unlawful Land Seizure


Despite genuine grievances from many of our poor and marginalized citizens whose pleas for service delivery have fallen on deaf ears – we appeal to community members not to be misled into breaking the law but should rather go through the proper platforms with government to air their grievances to speed up housing delivery.

While the DA supports land reform that is aimed at achieving redress in rural communities, the unlawful seizure of land will create an environment of anarchy and lawlessness.

The rule of law must prevail at all costs to ensure that public order and effective governance is maintained.
